  • Abstract
    The Office of Nursing Services (ONS), First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) of Health Canada, is developing a nursing documentation system based on a nursing–specific content based framework. The project is called the Nursing Minimum Data Set (NMDS). It is a research-based process of comparative field-based and international research related to nursing and Indigenous populations and culminated in the production of relational well-person data dictionaries capturing data elements ranging from birth to the elderly. Each of the NMDS modules is subject to extensive and focused peer review by nursing representatives at various levels from across the Canadian FNIHB regions. The modules build on each other and form the initial foundation for a research-based, relational nursing data specific to First Nations and Inuit clients. The data dictionaries have a structure based in informatics where no elements are repeated and all definitions are consistently maintained and threaded through from one module to the next- as such, they are a content-based foundation for nursing documentation and information gathering in either a paper or electronic formats. The data sets have been constructed to include elements required for outcome and performance measurement. The use of ICNP: The NMDS project will map the ICNP taxonomy onto the NMDS as possible. The project may use some of the ICNP as elements where applicable (e.g. ICNP use of term “health seeking behaviour” could replace current term “health maintenance” as a n example).
