International Classification for Nursing Practice

Other names: ICNP

The International Classification for Nursing Practice (INCP) was accepted by WHO within the WHO Family of International Classifications (FIC) to extend the coverage of the domain of nursing practice as an essential and complementary part of professional health services. ICNP classifies patient data and clinical activity in the domain of nursing and can be used for decision-making and policy development aimed at improving health status and health care delivery. ICNP can represent diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes. A number of subsets are available to provide precoordinated concepts for select health priorities, including nursing outcome indicators, paediatric pain management, palliative care, and partnering with patients and families to promote adherence to treatment.
