This book is directed to practicing and student nurses, health care professionals invloved in putting information systems in place, and information technology profesionals working in the health sector. Its objective is to provide these health workers with a basic source of facts on the use and implementation of standards in clinical and administrative documentation. A compelling case is made about the importance of appropriately documenting nursing care, in order to facilitate analyses of nursing activities, the provision of quality and evidence-based direct patient care, and promotion of continuity of service. Standardized documentation also is requred for communicating nursing concepts, interventions, and outcomes to other nurses and health professionals working in different settings and countries. This book focuses on key issues of modern nursing practice and illustrates how information technology support for the implementation and use of standard-based practice can improve clinical and management nursing functions.
