Assignment: The Impact of Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes and Patient Care Efficiencies

In the Discussion for this module, you considered the interaction of nurse informaticists with other specialists to ensure successful care. How is that success determined?

Patient outcomes and the fulfillment of care goals is one of the major ways that healthcare success is measured. Measuring patient outcomes results in the generation of data that can be used to improve results. Nursing informatics can have a significant part in this process and can help to improve outcomes by improving processes, identifying at-risk patients, and enhancing efficiency.

To Prepare:

  • Review the concepts of technology application as presented in the Resources.
  • Reflect on how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence may help fortify nursing informatics as a specialty by leading to increased impact on patient outcomes or patient care efficiencies.

The Assignment: (4-5 pages)

In a 4- to 5-page project proposal written to the leadership of your healthcare organization, propose a nursing informatics project for your organization that you advocate to improve patient outcomes or patient-care efficiency. Your project proposal should include the following:

  • Describe the project you propose.
  • Identify the stakeholders impacted by this project.
  • Explain the patient outcome(s) or patient-care efficiencies this project is aimed at improving and explain how this improvement would occur. Be specific and provide examples.
  • Identify the technologies required to implement this project and explain why.
  • Identify the project team (by roles) and explain how you would incorporate the nurse informaticist in the project team.

Women’s health.   

Review the attached PowerPoint presentation.  Once done answer the following questions: 

1.What types of differences in health care and maintenance have you noticed between men and women in the clinical setting? How do women’s approaches and behaviors seem to differ from men’s, if at all? When female family members are present, how does their involvement or behavior seem to differ from male family members’ involvement, if at all? 

2.Mention and discuss the pros and cons of various contraceptives methods.   For example artificial reproductive technology, parental consent for abortion, adolescent reproductive rights, public funding for female cancer screening, reporting of partner abuse, female circumcision (in countries where it is the cultural norm), etc. 

3.Why do you think that women tend to go their providers more than men do? Why might women be more comfortable with doctors and healthcare? Is this something you notice in your own family and friends?  

As stated in the syllabus the assignment must be presented in an APA format word document, Arial 12 font attached to the forum on the discussion board.  A minimum of 3 evidenced-based references must be used. References must be no older than 5 years.  

A minimum of 700 words is required.

Marcia Stapleton    4 posts   Re: Topic 1 DQ 2  Another “cultural” type barrier to EBP in clinical settings is our preference for humans  as our information source. When working in a clinical setting and there are more experienced nurses around us, most nurses default to asking the more experience nurse what to do in a clinical situation.  The more experienced nurse might have experience with the situation, but is it evidence-based?  Even when textual information was accessible in a clinical situation, it was shown that nurses preferred other nurses as a resource over the textual resource (Thompson, 2004).  This is seen over and over in the patient care setting.  When we are wondering how to deal with a situation, we just ask a nurse we think has dealt with the situation, and consider them the expert or the evidence-based research.  As a clinical nurse leader, I field many questions each day.  In order to move towards an evidence based practice, I must direct the nursing staff to the research related to the question.  Reference:  Thompson, C. (2004). Nurses, information use, and clinical decision making–the real world potential for  evidence-based decisions in nursing. Evidence-Based Nursing.

Please In 2-3 paragraph respond to this post : 

A Walk Through The Steps of a Nursing Research Study-2.docx 

What have you learned and will it make a difference?

In my welcome letter to you, I indicated that every class should change your thinking about the focus of the class. Again read the provided ” A Walk Through The Steps of a Nursing Research Study”.  This is the same document you were provided during Week 1. Has your ability to read with understanding changed? Briefly share your thoughts regarding this experience. In this discussion forum  from a “qualitative approach” briefly reflect on what you have learned about nursing research, evidence based nursing and its impact on you as a professional nurse earning a baccalaureate degree in nursing.  From a “quantitative approach”, reflect on your response to the scale of your reading and understanding of nursing research you identified in week 1. How has it changed? What activities most contributed to your enhanced knowledge base?  

Additionally, I would like you to discuss your preparedness to respond to the Institute of Medicine’s mandate that “Participants have set a goal that, by the year 2020, 90 percent of clinical decisions will be supported by accurate, timely, and up-to-date clinical information, and will reflect the best available evidence* (IOM, 2007).   What strategies can you personally implement to address this mandate on a personal/professional level beyond obtaining your baccalaureate degree in nursing? What is the state of your employing institution (no need to name your institution-just identify if it is an acute care setting, long term setting etc) in addressing this mandate since it was initiated in 2007 and with only 1 year left?  Will your employing institution meet the mandate? Initiate a discussion regarding this mandate with a managerial/administrative/ person in your employing institution to gain their perspective on evidence based practice. Here is a website that you can select to review to gain information on this directive. If possible, informally ask some of your nursing colleagues if they are aware of the mandate. What challenges do you foresee to the implementation of evidence-based nursing practice in your workplace?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK52821/

Lastly, discuss how you would identify the “best available evidence” and what is the  significance of “Level of Evidence” as it relates to evidence that informs your nursing practice. 

It is expected in this forum that you use/implement the appropriate nursing research terminology. Hint: consider your words like research, prove etc. 

Also my initial respond about level of understanding of  article”A Walk Through The Steps of a Nursing Research Study-“from week 1 was: 

“I read the document ” A Walk Through The Steps of a Nursing Research Study”, my comfort level in reading and understanding this document was satisfying me since I got all explanation very organized and well formated that made it easy to read and get the idea.My knowledge base of nursing and all types of researches was my effective tool to understand most of the document. From quantitative approach I can rate my comfort level 8 out of 10, which I am still happy to this level of understanding.”

Now by the end of this course is expected that my level of understanding increased, so you know how to answer this question compare to my initial post from first week.

Review the following case study and discuss the questions that follow.

JH is a 12-year-old boy diagnosed several months ago with nephrosis following postinfectious glomerulonephritis secondary to an episode of pneumococcal pneumonia. He has been coming to the clinic to have his condition monitored and therapies adjusted as needed. At his latest clinic visit, a decrease in urine output, increasing lethargy, hyperventilation, and generalized edema are noted. Trace amounts of protein are detected in JH’s urine by dipstick. Blood is drawn for laboratory analysis, and the results are as follows:
 pH = 7.36 
PaCO2 = 33 mm Hg 
PaO2 = 100 mm Hg 
HCO3 – = 18 mEq/L 
Hct = 30% 
Na = 130 mEq/L 
K = 5.4 mEq/L 
BUN = 58 mg/dl 
creatinine = 3.9 mg/dl 
albumin = 2.0 g/dl

  1. How would a pneumococcal infection lead to glomerulonephritis? How can glomerulonephritis result in nephrosis?
  2. Use JH’s laboratory values to determine if he is still experiencing nephrosis or if his condition is progressing to renal failure.
  3. What additional physical or laboratory findings would be helpful in determining JH’s degree of renal impairment?
  4. How will JH’s therapy change if his condition has progressed from nephrosis to uremia?
