This guidance is aimed at nursing staff (nurses and other health care workers working in any sector within or outside the UK). It reflects the RCN’s current understanding of factors that will ensure that the nursing content of electronic patient records

  • supports effective clinical judgements, decisions, care and communication
  • accurately represents the work of nursing and identifies the nursing contribution to patient outcomes
  • reflects core nursing values such as patient focus, partnership working, confidentiality, respect and choice
  • provides relevant data for commissioning, workforce planning, performance monitoring, quality improvement and research
