Importance of confidentiality on nursing documentation?

The major importance of confidentiality is to protect you and the patient. It protects the patient in the sense that their personal information is not getting out to random people and they won't have to be embarrassed about what ever they have (ex. STDS. Would you want random people knowing about it?). It also protects you from possible lawsuits from sharing the information.

Formatting Citation and Documentation

When quoting from an encyclopedia do you need to be sure to include the publisher and the page number of the article?

Yes. How you include this information depends on the "kind" of writing you are doing.

Most writers in the humanities use the MLA system, according to which the page number would be included in a parenthetical citation--e.g. (395), and the encyclopedia's name and publisher would be included in a separate Works Cited page at the end of the paper. An internet search for "MLA" should bring up many examples of proper documentation. I can recommend:

Other forms of documentation include the APA style (for writings in/about the social sciences), Chicago ("non-scholarly" works), and AMA (medicine and biological sciences).

When quoting from encyclopedias and other reference works always give details of the edition. If quoting from a website, give the date you accessed (read) the site.

In which system are specific page numbers referenced in the text itself?

The MLA style, which is used for writings in the humanities, uses in-text parenthetical citations. (I'm not familiar enough with other styles to say whether or not they do) These citations include the page number and the author's name (when this information is NOT included in the text itself). E.g., Moby Dick begins "Call me Ishmael" (Melville 1). but, Herman Melville begins Moby Dick with the imperitive sentence, "Call me Ishmael." (1) or Melville begins the first page of Moby Dick with the protaginist's imperative, "Call me Ishmael."

Which year is concidered the publishing date for an APA citation when multiple years are listed?

According to the related link: YEAR OF PUBLICATION

For edited books, include only the year of copyright, in parenthesis, then end with a period. If the book was republished, include the original date of publication and the new date, separated by a slash (/), in the text citation, but list only the publication date of the source used in the reference list. If no date of publication is listed, put "n.d." in the parenthesis. Standard form (1995). Republished book (in-text citation) (1935/1980). No date given(n.d.).
