IMIA-NI definition of nursing informatics updated

IMIA-NI logo

The definition of nursing informatics used by IMIA-NI, the IMIA Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics (, was updated at their meeting held during NI2009 in Helsinki, Finland. This was the first update since 1998.

IMIA-NI states that “Nursing Informatics science and practice integrates nursing, its information and knowledge and their management with information and communication technologies to promote the health of people, families and communities world wide.”

All members are encouraged to use this definition, in preference to others, especially in anything they are writing about nursing informatics.

Thanks to Patrick Weber, IMIA-NI Vice Chair for Communications. Full information about IMIA-NI can be found on their website at

The next IMIA-NI Congress will be held in Montreal, Canada, on June 23-27, 2012 –
