Dublin City University School of Nursing and Human Sciences ICNP User Group

The ICN Dublin City University School of Nursing and Human Sciences ICNP User Group is located in North Dublin, Ireland at Dublin City University. The mission of the DCU ICNP User Group is to establish a national user group for nursing terminology in the Republic of Ireland to advance the profession of nursing and influence health and social care policy at a national and international level. The centre will advance uptake and use of ICNP in practice in Ireland and establish a research cluster for mapping of ICNP terms and development of catalogues with existing partner services. The centre will promote use of ICNP equivalence tables with SNOMED-CT in line with the national clinical programme objectives through the Health Service Executive Information Directorate Authority as appropriate. Through research and development the DCU ICNP User Group will collaborate with eHealth Ireland and promote uptake and use of health informatics terminology standards such as SNOMED-CT. The centre will also work on established relationships with existing ICNP accreditation centres and seek funding for future initiatives. The centre plans to disseminate information on research activity both nationally through the National Nursing Association, Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation World of Irish Nursing and Midwifery Journal, conferences and peer-reviewed publications.
