[en] The Ministry of Public Health commissioned a research project to the Catholic University of Leuven and the University Hospital of Liege to revise the Belgian Nursing Minimum Dataset (B-NMDS). The study started in 2000 and will end with the implementation of the revised B-NMDS in January 2007. The study entailed four major phases. The first phase involved the development of a conceptual framework based on a literature review and secondary data analysis. The second phase focused on language development and development of a data collection tool. The third phase focused on data collection and validation of the new tool. In the fourth phase the validity and reliability of the dataset was tested. The new dataset is without avail if it is not leading to new information. Four applications of the dataset has been defined from the beginning: evaluation of the appropriateness of stay (AEP) in the hospital, nurse staffing, hospital financing and quality management. The aim of this paper is to describe how the B-NMDS can contribute to each of these applications.
