Implementation Guide
This guide is an authoritative source to support the development and implementation of electronic record systems that use the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP). ICNP is a standardised terminology that can support nursing practice and patient care worldwide. It accommodates both interface properties (to facilitate use at the point of care) and reference properties (to facilitate secondary use of data and harmonisation with other terminologies).

ICNP is an integral part of SNOMED. This guide seeks to support the use of ICNP independently from SNOMED – that is, under a separate ICNP licence.

Main sections:

• Introduction

• ICNP implementation

• Applications that use ICNP

• Approaches to implementation

• Structure and content of ICNP

• ICNP in health records

• Change management
