Introduction to nursing informatics. Baltimore, MD: Author. Discusion 1. Review the summary of “To Err Is Human” presented in the Plawecki and Amrhein article found in this week’s Learning Resources. The most significant barrier to improving patient safety identified in “To Err Is Human” is a “lack of awareness of the extent to which errors occur daily in all health care settings and organizations (Wakefield, 2008).” Review “The Quality Chasm Series: Implications for Nursing” focusing on Table 3: “Simple Rules for the 21st Century Health Care System.” Consider your current organization or one with which you are familiar. Reflect on one of the rules where the “current rule” is still in operation in the organization and consider another instance in which the organization has effectively transitioned to the new rule Reference: Wakefield, M.

Review Nursing Informatics: Scope and Standards of Practice in this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the different functional areas it describes. Consider which areas relate to your current nursing responsibilities or to a position you held in the past. the key functional area(s) of nursing informatics relevant to your current position or to a position you recently held, and briefly describe why this area(s) is relevant. Identify the TIGER competencies you selected as essential to your functional area(s) in which you need improvement. Describe why these competencies are necessary and outline a plan for developing these competencies. Include any resources that are available to you within your organization and the ways you might access those resources. Assess how developing nursing informatics competencies would increase your effectiveness as a nurse. For this Discussion, identify one or two of the most relevant functional areas.2. Review the list of competencies recommended by the TIGER Initiative. Identify at least one skill in each of the main areas (basic computer competencies, information literacy competencies, and information management competencies) that is pertinent to your functional area(s) and in which you need to strengthen your abilities. Consider how you could improve your skills in these areas and the resources within your organization that might provide training and support. 3. WK3-Knowledge and Information Management. Application:Using the Data/Information/Knowledge/Wisdom Continuum. Review the information in Figure 6–1 in Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge. Develop a clinical question related to your area of practice that you would like to explore. Consider what you currently know about this topic. What additional information would you need to answer the question? Using the continuum of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom, determine how you would go about researching your question Write 3- to 4-page paper that addresses the following: Summarize the question you developed, and then relate how you would work through the four steps of the data, information, knowledge, wisdom continuum. Be specific. Identify the databases and search words you would use. Relate how you would take the information gleaned and turn it into useable knowledge. Can informatics be used to gain wisdom? Describe how you would progress from simply having useful knowledge to the wisdom to make decisions about the information you have found during your database search.
