In this paper we describe how nurse practitioners (NPs) use electronic medical records (EMR) features and functions at: (1) an individual and (2) a clinic level to support patient wellness and chronic disease management activities. Fifteen NPs from British Columbia (BC), Canada participated in a qualitative, semi-structured interview study. NPs used EMRs with individual patients and at a clinic level to support wellness and chronic disease management activities. NP's used clinic notes, reminders, tasks and careplans to support wellness and disease management activities in individual patients while reports were used to manage patients at a clinic level...

OBJECTIVES: Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers. Residential radon is the cause of approximately 21,000 U.S. lung cancer deaths each year. Dangerous levels of radon are just as likely to be found in low-rise apartments and townhomes as single-family homes in the same area. The preferred radon mitigation strategy can be expensive and requires structural modifications to the home. The public health nurse (PHN) needs a collection of low-cost alternatives when working with low-income families or families who rent their homes...

OBJECTIVE: To use a qualitative track of the effects of two fractured neck of femur careplans (1 & 2) implemented at the Ipswich Emergency Department in 2002 and 2003 in order to comment on the reasons for comparative successes and failures as instruments for change in clinical practice. Careplan 1 was initiated by local clinicians in 2002, rescinded in 2003 to make way for the system wide careplan 2, then informally restituted in 2004 after careplan 2 was withdrawn. Careplan 2 did not articulate specific ED management plans...

Nursing Care Plans (NCP) and Nursing Clinical Practice Guidelines (NCPG) promote evidence-based patient care, but in their paper form they are difficult to be applied at the point-of-care. We present our approach to generate patient-specific nursing care plans by modeling and computerizing these nursing knowledge resources. We present a Nursing CarePlan Ontology (NCO) that models the NCP and NCPG to realize an integrated knowledge base for designing and executing patient-specific nursing CarePlans. We adapted METHONTOLOGY methodology for ontology engineering to develop our OWL-based NCO, and instantiated a set of NCP and NCPG...

Critical care nurses need a care plan tool to help integrate nursing interventions along with medical orders in order to develop a collaborative practice which respects physicians and nurses' roles in patient care. These authors describe a CarePlan Card which blends the traditional Kardex and care plan to create a dynamic, indispensable tool which coordinates both medical and nursing care and is responsive to the rapid changes seen in a critical care setting.

A study of charting in the Nursing Division at St. Boniface General Hospital identified problems with the narrative style of charting. This project was designed to develop and evaluate a practical, easy to use documentation system, with a structure for recording care as decisions were made. Integration of the care plan and nurse's notes was achieved, making documentation individualized to the patient and reflective of nursing practice. The charting system was tested on a 30-bed surgical unit with 25 nursing staff and evaluated through a chart audit, charting opinionnaire and time survey...

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a very complex and devastating disorder of the brain that affects over 2 million people in the United States, mostly over age 65. Approximately one-half are taken care of at home by family members; the remainder are in institutions. Nearly 120,000 deaths are attributed to AD annually. While biomedical research continues to make headway in uncovering factors related to the disease, the causes, and therefore, the treatment remain just beyond our reach. In the meantime, persons with AD, their family members, and professional caregivers must learn to cope with this disabling disease on a day-to-day basis while waiting for a breakthrough...

With the growth of scientific knowledge in the health care disciplines, it has become increasingly difficult for practicing health care professionals to store and manipulate the information required to make clinical decisions. Where the decision making process can be defined and validated, expert systems will be able to assist beginning professionals to learn appropriate patterns of decision making. This article discusses the rationale for utilization of expert systems in a nursing environment. A prototype expert system called CAREPLAN, developed for use in an obstetrical environment, was built using Personal Consultant Plus, a software tool based on the LISP language...

A computerized nurse careplanning system (CNCP) was implemented on two nursing units of the Veterans' Affairs Medical Center, Washington, DC. This pretest, post-test experimental study sought to determine the effects of implementing this system on selected nursing care activities and associated patient outcomes. Effects on outcomes of job satisfaction, use of careplanning and competency of staff nurses were also examined. The sample consists of four medical nursing wards with registered nurses (n = 40) and patients (n = 160 as subjects)...
