Abstract

It is a pleasure to be participating in this preconference workshop on Standards and Minimum Data Sets, for it is important that nurses move forward in their work on developing nursing information systems (NISs) and computerization of data in such a way that their systems will provide access to comparable data across clinical populations and settings—locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. It also is a pleasure to be participating in this program with colleague speakers, who represent a vendor, an information network of a United States consortium of university hospitals, the Project Director for the Australian Community Nursing Minimum Data Set, and others working on data sets in health care. Discussion among the workshop leaders and attendees should provide a rich learning experience.
