NWIS and NHS Wales scoop Nursing Times Award

The national transformation of nursing documentation has won a Nursing Times 2020 Award. The prize was achieved in the category of ‘Technology and Data in Nursing’.

Fran Beadle, National Clinical Informatics Lead for Nursing, said the main achievement of the project has been to produce  “a nationally approved standardised nursing language that has enabled the development of a national digital platform that supports evidenced based nursing to improve outcomes and care for the citizens of Wales”.

The digital platform is called the Welsh Nursing Care Record, and has been piloted on wards across Wales. It will be expanded to more wards over forthcoming months. Project Senior Responsible Owner,  Claire Bevan added, “It’s been a fantastic team effort by everyone. I’ve been so impressed by the way everyone has come together and placed patients at the centre to improve nursing care processes”.
