This project aims to design an XML language and application framework for development, representation, application and administration of nursing guidelines.
Nursing guidelines appear to be an essential instrument of evidence based nursing practice, similar, but not equal to evidence based medicine.
Development (life cycle) of nursing guidelines apparently includes five elementar steps:
NKML shall provide elements and instruments for all these steps of the development cycle in evidence-based nursing practice, with the classification of nursing practice (diagnoses/interventions/outcomes) being based upon a commonly accepted standard, such as ICNP® (if applicable).
The NKML project is the central part of the NKMF (Nursing Knowledge Modeling Framework) project, which was drafted as an XML application for practical application of nursing guidelines and has been used in point-of-care web services on two ICU’s for several years (Heidelberg University Clinic, Germany: 2003-2008).
