  • Abstract
    At the Ohio State University College of Nursing, they will conduct a study of terms used to describe isolation practices. The overall objective of this project is to address the problem of inconsistent isolation terminology and to develop methods to map terms used in clinical practice to a standardized terminology. The hypothesis is that existing standard vocabularies can be used as a map for locally used terms describing isolation precautions. The proposal is to develop computerized methods to map the contents of multiple data repositories in order to generate consistent, standard, and generalizable descriptions of isolation precautions.
