CARVALHO, Emilia Campos de; CRUZ, Dina de Almeida Lopes Monteiro da  and  HERDMAN, T. Heather. Contribution of standardized languages for knowledge production, clinical reasoning and clinical Nursing practice. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.66, n.spe, pp.134-141. ISSN 0034-7167.

The standardized language systems are important tools for dealing with the increasing complexity of nursing care. In this article the authors present the main benefits that the use of these systems provide for the required clinical reasoning in nursing care, the construction and organization of knowledge of the discipline, and for the clinical practice of nursing. The potential contributions of the standardized language systems in these fields stem from the fact that these systems provide a formal structure for supporting clinical reasoning, organizing knowledge and nursing experience.
