About the Speaker

Dr. Christine Spisla, NANDA-I Director of Informatics, has a long history of working with SNOMED CT, a health terminology used in the electronic exchange of clinical health information. 

Webinar Summary

Dr. Spisla introduced the SNOMED CT basics and hierarchies, answering the question “What is SNOMED CT?” and also talked about the SNOMED CT Terminology Structure. She provided an example using a NANDA-I nursing diagnosis to understand this terminology and its connections to the NANDA-I terminology. She also led a live Q&A at the end of the webinar and shared information about how participants could get more involved.
