Read these proceedings of a recently held symposium that focused on the areas of clinical practice, administration, nursing education, research and policy. Sponsored by the Canadian Nurses Association, Canada Health Infoway and CIHI — with support from the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association and the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto — the symposium’s goal was to develop an action plan for moving forward on the collection and use of nursing data standards in Canada. More than 60 nurse leaders participated, representing most jurisdictions and health care sectors across Canada, as well as selected national health care organizations.
