The ICNP® terminology and the Brazilian ICNP® Centre participation on its development and dissemination



The ICNP® terminology and the Brazilian ICNP® Centre participation on its development and dissemination



Revista Brasileira de Enfermagem 66 Spec: 142-150



This paper aims to describe (1) the evolution of the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP® ), since the International Council of Nurses (ICN) assumed, in 1989, the task of developing a classification of the elements of professional practice (nursing diagnoses, interventions and outcomes) with an international ambit; (2) the ICNP® Programme and its structural components, which fit together to conform the ICNP® terminology life cycle; (3) the Centres for ICNP® Research and Development, accredited by ICN; (4) finally, the Brazilian Center's contribution for research, development and dissemination of the ICNP® terminology. The ICNP® is constantly evolving and much has been achieved in nearly twenty-five years of its development. The ICNP® Centres have played a key role in the development, dissemination and use of the terminology in different fields of professional practice - teaching, clinical practice, research and management of nursing care.
