Recording Care


The purpose of recording nursing care is to evidence decision making and clinical judgements while supporting delivery and continuity of care, subsequently improving communication between healthcare professionals and the identification of risks to the person accessing the service. Nurses and Midwives are required from a regulatory and employer perspective to provide evidence of their contribution, professional judgement and interventions in care delivered.

Recording their contribution is an integral  part of nursing and midwifery care.

This website has been created to support registrants to make improvements in their record keeping practice. Please use the navigation menu on the right hand side of this page to access the resources within this microsite.
