Abstract

PURPOSE: To examine the effects of using standardized terminologies in nursing. METHODS: A systematic literature research was conducted in June 2015 going back to January 2007. A modified narrative synthesis was used as the structure for the analysis. RESULTS: Twenty-three articles were included. Three themes were identified: enable evaluation of nursing-sensitive outcome indicators, enable calculation of resource consumption, and characterize nursing care. CONCLUSIONS: The studies included in the analysis described evidence for use- fulness rather than effect. In all the studies, standardized nursing terminology was found to be essential for measuring, clarifying, and understanding nursing care. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: The use of standardized terminolo- gies could be advantageous. However, there are shortcomings in nursing docu- mentation and the use of standardized nursing terminologies that obstruct evaluation of nursing care. SYFTE: att undersöka effekterna av att använda standardiserade terminologier i omvårdnad. METOD: En systematisk litteraturöversikt genomfördes juni 2015 och sökningen begränsades till åren 2007- juni 2015. Modifierad narrativ syntes har använts som struktur för analysen. RESULTAT: Tjugotre artiklar inkluderades. Analysen gav tre tema: möjliggör utvärdering av omvårdnadskänsliga resultatindikatorer, möjliggör beräkning av resursåtgång, kännetecknade för omvårdnad. SLUTSATSER: Studierna som inkluderades beskrev snarare bevis för användbarhet än effekt. I samtliga studier beskrevs att standardiserade omvårdnadsterminologier var väsentliga för att kunna mäta, förklara och förstå omvårdnad. KONSEKVENSER FÖR OMVÅRDNADSPRAXIS: Användandet av standar- diserade terminologier kan vara fördelaktigt. Dock finns det brister i omvårdnadsdokumentationen som försvårar dess användning
