Discuss the current patient safety characteristics used by your current workplace or clinical site.

Unit 1 discussion
What Is Nursing Informatics?
Discuss ways that nursing informatics could be applied to
all areas of professional nursing practice, including clinical practice,
administration, education, and research. Provide examples of each. What do you
see as the biggest significance of nursing informatics, and why?

Unit 2 discussion
Database Search
Choose a topic related to health that has meaning to your
personal health, interests, and well-being. This may be a disease, such as
diabetes, or a healthy fitness activity.
Conduct a database search comparing one of the following
database directories with Google Scholar.
CINAHL and Google Scholar
PubMed and Google Scholar
Explain how you were able to narrow down the number of
article hits you had initially, and present within your post a summary of the
credible article you chose as your resource. How do you know your article
choice is credible? Which database do you prefer and why?
How will using a database search facilitate your
scholarly work;
nursing work (evidence-based practice); and
personal self-development?

Unit 3 discussion
Healthcare Technology: Local, National, and Global
Considerations
Imagine that you are a public health nurse, and you and your
colleagues have determined that the threat of a deadly new strain of influenza
indicates a need for a mass inoculation program in your community. What public
health data would have been used to determine the need for such a program?
Where would you locate public health data? What data will be collected to
determine the success of such a program? How might you communicate this to
other communities or internationally?

Unit 4 discussion
Workarounds and Their Implications for Patient Safety
What is a workaround? Identify a workaround (specific to
technology used in a hospital setting) that you have used or perhaps seen
someone else use, and analyze why you feel this risk-taking behavior was chosen
over behavior that conforms to a safety culture. What are the risks? Are there
benefits? Why or why not?
Discuss the current patient safety characteristics used by
your current workplace or clinical site. Identify at least three aspects of
your workplace or clinical environment that need to be changed with regard to
patient safety (including confidentiality), and then suggest strategies for
change.

Unit 5 discussion
From Data to Knowledge and Wisdom!
How does data become knowledge and finally wisdom? Explain the
relationship between knowledge acquisition, knowledge processing, knowledge
generation, knowledge dissemination, and wisdom. Then, provide examples from
your clinical practice (or past work experiences) according to the following.
Examples of knowledge acquisition
Examples of knowledge generation
Examples of knowledge processing
Examples of knowledge dissemination
Examples of the use of feedback

Unit 6 discussion
Informatics and the Development of Standards
Discuss the roles of federal, state, and local public health
agencies in the development of standards for informatics in healthcare.

Unit 7 discussion
Technology: Benefits and Future Trends
What technology do you find most beneficial to use in your
work or school setting? Least beneficial? Why do you find this tool useful or
not? Then, using your imagination, look to the future and think about how this
tool could be enhanced even further. Describe your dream technology, with
consideration for patient care and safety.

Unit 8 discussion
Team Presentation
This week, one member of your team will be responsible for
posting your team presentation to this discussion thread under the
color-coordinated thread below that corresponds with your team. This must be
posted by Monday of Unit 8 by 11:59 p.m.
Critique a team presentation other than your own, and
include what the presentation taught you and what you see as far as its effect
on patient safety and healthcare technology.
What changes in the presentation would you recommend, and
why?
Ask questions! Each team is responsible for responding to
questions asked of its presentation!
Remember to include sources of literature in your posts to
back up the statements you make! Remember, we are all about evidence-based
practice!
This is a short week, and you still must have at least two
posts on 2 different days this week. The course ends on Wednesday of Unit 8.Unit 1 discussion What Is Nursing Informatics?Discuss ways that nursing informatics could be applied to
