Representing nursing assessment data with the ICNP.

Journal Article

Patient assessment provides the basis for identifying patient problems sensitive to nursing care and aligning nursing interventions to promote positive patient outcomes. We mapped the key concepts and attribute relations extracted from a set of initial patient assessment items to the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP). Although we found the coverage of the ICNP not yet complete, we believe that the ICNP does have the potential to represent the nursing assessment data.
