Abstract

The authors address the issue of clinical knowledge in nursing, and the feasibility of emulating this knowledge in expert system technology. The perspective on patterns of knowing for nursing practice, advanced by B. A. Carper (1978), serves as the point of departure. The four patterns of knowing--empirics, esthetics, ethics, personal knowledge--are evaluated as to the extent to which they can be emulated in clinical expert systems, given constraints imposed by the current technology of these systems.
