ATIC is a project on the architecture of the nursing knowledge through an interface nursing language. A standardized vocabulary, concept-oriented, validated and used within the practice for 10 years.
The acronym ATIC contains the Catalan words for: Architecture, Terminology, Interface-Nurse-Information and Knowledge.
The ATIC Terminology is articulated into 3 main axes that allow for the representation of the nursing process – assessment, diagnosis (and results) and intervention –, and 9 additional axes.
It is a language system that is complementary to the traditional classifications, which are characterized by terms based on the natural language that the professionals use in their practices, which subsequently undergo a theoretical refinement through procedures of concept development and analysis and also of analysis of the nursing scientific production.
ATIC is a terminology that acts as a bridge between the natural language and the classification systems, increasing the specificity level of the terms and concepts so as to facilitate the representation of the registers and systems of electronical clinical records, observations, judgements and interventions that the nurses offer to the people that benefit from their care.
In Catalonia, the ATIC Terminology is used as nursing vocabulary in the registers of electronical clinical records, the development of care standards and the exploitation of the information on the provision of nurse care in the following centers: Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol (Badalona), Hospital Verge de la Cinta (Tortosa), Hospital Universitari Joan XXIII (Tarragona), Hospital de Viladecans, Hospital Universitari Dr. Josep Trueta (Girona), Hospital Universitari Vall d’Hebron (Barcelona), Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge (Hospitalet de Llobregat), Hospital Universitari Arnau de Vilanova (Lleida), Institut Català d’Oncologia-Hospital Duran i Reynals (Hospitalet de Llobregat), Institut Català d’Oncologia (Badalona), Institut Català d’Oncologia (Girona), Hospital del Pallars, Hospital de la Seu d’Urgell, Hospital Santa Maria (Lleida) and Parc Sanitari Pere Virgili (Barcelona).
