This book is dedicated to the promotion of the International Classification Nursing practice (ICNP) in Europe and to demonstrate how comparative tele-matic based nursing data can be used in nursing modules of the electronic patient records. Using ICNP as structured data entry will counter the lack of uniform comparative descriptive data on nursing care and enhance the clinical nursing research potential of electronic patient records. It is the aim of TELENURSE not only to advance nursing documentation from the stage of paper and pen to the stage of modern telematic but also to advance electronic nursing documentation from isolated systems to integrated nursing modules of the electronic patient records. Integrations spanning from data integration to integration of nursing modules with an overall architecture of electronic patient records require on the one hand different competencies and skills. On the other hand integration can only be accomplished between equal partners. The marriage of nursing knowledge to telematic knowledge within TELENURSE is believed to result in new generations of comprehensive and integrated telematic applications which will be of benefit to the whole health care sector. This book will update you on the insights with respect to the electronic applicability of the ICNP (in a European Health Environment).
