Synthesis of methods, rules, and issues of standardizing nursing intervention language mapping
NLM Title Abbreviation
TOPIC: Nursing language mapping. PURPOSE: To synthesize the methods, rules and issues described in two studies that mapped nonstandardized nursing orders/interventions into the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC). SOURCES: The methods and results of studies conducted by Moorhead & Delaney and Coenen et al. CONCLUSIONS: Results indicate that the NIC is an effective classification of mapping nursing orders/interventions to support across-site comparisons of nursing treatments. A set of decision rules to support mapping of interventions to the NIC is outlined.
