Expert nurses and expert systems. Research and development issues

Comput Nurs. Jan-Feb 1990;8(1):23-8.

Abstract

Expert systems in nursing have developed primarily through deductive, theoretical approaches and have, for the most part, failed to articulate the need for expert clinical nurse knowledge and heuristics as a basis for developing expert systems. Research using knowledge engineering and nurse experts, as well as multi-method approaches to researching nurse experts, should provide content for development of computer systems, in general, and expert systems, in particular, in nursing.
