Evaluating an ICNP Web-based nursing documentation system



Evaluating an ICNP Web-based nursing documentation system



Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 107(Pt 1): 386-390



The purpose of this paper is to present the evaluation of a web based nursing documentation system which helps nursing professionals and students to study ICNP Greek beta 2 version and to create nursing diagnoses, interventions and outcomes by selecting relevant terms from ICNP. This advanced web-based ICNP browser enables the authentication of the user, and the creation of a type of nursing care plan through the use of ICNP. It provides different ways for creating nursing diagnoses, interventions and outcomes, by selecting relevant ICNP terms through the tree-structure view, index and search components of the tool. The evaluation of this nursing documentation system is carried out by a survey among nursing professionals working in nursing units in hospitals. The results which have derived from this survey are presented. Moreover, conclusions regarding the future changes that should be made in the system are reported.
