Purpose:  To collect input on the Admission History Task Force from a diverse group of stakeholders.

Objectives: Review Admission History Task Force Charter and progress to date. Critically examine Guiding Principles. Review and refine content for six components of Admission History and Screening.

A taskforce was created across multiple Nursing Knowledge Big Data Science Workgroups to address the problem of documentation burden. This is an interactive session to evolve the content work of the Nursing History and Current State Screening task force. Participants will work in small groups to critique the work products of the task force, including the model documentation elements. Education on the next step, modeling and coding will conclude the session.
