NIPEC has developed an illustrative record keeping guide. Evidencing Care: Improving Record Keeping Practice has been produced through engagement with registrants in Northern Ireland, who informed us of what advice they would find useful to assist them to improve their Record Keeping practices. The aim of this guide is to build on the advice and guidance from our regulatory body, the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).

 This stand-alone guidance should enable the practitioner to understand:

  • Why good Record Keeping is a necessity
  • Principles of the NMC Guidance on Record Keeping
  • The legal implications of poor Record Keeping
  • How Record Keeping reflects practice

The guide is available in sectional format as part of tools and resources available via a new web based mini-site to assist registrants either as individuals or through teams to improve their Record Keeping practices.

For further details on this guide, using the contact details shown at the right hand side of this page.
