According to The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language similarity is the (a) ?equivalence,? (b) ?resemblance? and (c) corresponding ?features? or characteristics? (2009). There are various ways of defining similarity the most common term shared is comparison. Accuracy and consistency are essential when providing patient care and it should be displayed within nursing practice, communication, and documentation. Institute of Medicine reports that there are over 98,000 deaths caused by preventable errors (1999). The purpose of this paper is to respond to a peer reviewed concept analysis article, describing the method of analysis, the steps of the process, results for each step and to apply the concept to a practice situation.

The Electronic Health Record (EHR) improves the exchange of patient data, accuracy, and quality of patient care. Poor communication and technology can impede a positive outcome for the patient. A core competence of nursing is documentation of patient's response to nursing interventions and effectively communicating the care given. In the article Concept Analysis of Similarity Applied to Nursing Diagnoses: Implications for Educators the author uses the Walker and Avant concept analysis of similarity. In nursing, concept analysis clarifies unclear concepts and gives a mean to common understanding within nursing practice. ?The purpose of a concept analysis is to describe the concept well enough so that defining characteristics can be determined and used to distinguish ?likeness or unlikeness? between concepts? (Walker & Avant, 2005, p. 64).

[...] Therefore, it is important to understand nurse's focal orientation educators have to allow nurses to elaborate on the key aspects of clinical events that learners deem most important. Accuracy in the selection of concepts requires identification of patterns, and relationships. The difference in nurse's attention will lead to varied results (Falan p. 153) References McEwen, M., & Willis, E., (2011).Theoretical Basis for Nurses (3rd ed.).
