Werley & Lang (1988, p7) define a minimum data set as: ?A minimum set of items of information with uniform definitions and categories concerning the specific dimension of professional nursing which meets the information needs of multiple data users in the health care system.? In developing an Irish Nursing Minimum Data Set (INMDS) for multiple users, the team was cognisant of the need to facilitate common understanding across healthcare settings of precisely which phenomena individual data set items represent. This was addressed by the development of a Data Dictionary to describe the problems, interventions and activities that each item represented by providing definitions and examples from practice. However, it is important that such representations are both precise and authentic. The team sought to establish this balance between authenticity and accuracy by using sources from two main genres: classification systems (to facilitate common understanding with brevity and accuracy) and data from focus groups and documentary analysis conducted earlier in the study (to enhance authenticity through use of the vernacular language of Irish nursing). This paper describes the use of these genres in constructing data dictionary definitions and examples. This is done by taking a number of definitions and describing their development.
