The TELENURSE project is an accompanying measure to the EU Telematics Application Programme. Its primary aim is to promote consensus among nurses around the use of the International Classification of Nursing Practice (ICNP) in order to lay the foundations for comparing nursing practice across different parts of Europe. This article describes how, as part of TELENURSE, the Medical Informatics Group is applying the GALEN (Generalised Architecture for Languages, Encyclopaedias and Nomenclatures in Medicine) approach to clinical terminology to represent ICNP in a usable and useful form.
