ICN welcomes worldwide participation in ICNP® catalogue development. ICNP benefits from local, regional, national and international participation and application to practice. ICN can assist groups to determine the content and organisation of each catalogue and work with the developers to formulate and code the pre-coordinated ICNP statements for diagnoses, outcomes and interventions.
ICNP catalogues (nursing data subsets) for specified health concerns can fill a practical need in building health information systems with all the benefits of using a unified nursing language. ICNP catalogues are an accessible reference for nurses in their particular care setting. The documentation of nursing care using ICNP will enhance safety and quality of care and will provide systematic, retrievable data about healthcare worldwide.
Guidelines for ICNP Catalogue Development
The Guidelines provide a framework for catalogues development. The ISO standard for Nursing Diagnoses and Nursing Actions are included in the Guidelines with 10 steps to guide the catalogue development process. Nurses and others who decide to develop catalogues should contact ICN with their intent so that a Use Agreement is signed and, if possible, collaborations with other developers can be established.
