Exploring Community Planning Thinking as a Model for Use Case Development.
Stud Health Technol Inform. 2016;225:1020-1
Authors: Wilson ML, Procter PM
There are many vetted technical and semantic standards promulgated within the United States and the United Kingdom to operationalize eHealth interoperability in order to improve care outcomes, manage population health, and provide efficient information exchange between providers, services, patients and consumers. However, consideration must be given to the complex real world use cases in which the data and information will be exchanged between a wide variety of interested parties, including the consumer or patient. In many instances, community based use cases need development in order to serve as the model. These use cases can only be accurately described and created by using a wide lens viewpoint such as community-planning engages, which requires that all interested parties be actively involved. This poster will introduce models of community planning that can be developed and led by the Nurse Informatician.

Assessment of the Need to Integrate Academic Electronic Medical Records Into the Undergraduate Clinical Practicum: A Focus Group Interview.
Comput Inform Nurs. 2016 Jun;34(6):259-65
Authors: Choi M, Park JH, Lee HS
As healthcare systems demand that nurses be competent in using electronic medical records for patient care, the integration of electronic medical records into nursing curricula has become necessary. The purpose of this study was to explore how students, new nurses, clinical instructors, and faculty perceive the integration of academic electronic medical records into the undergraduate clinical practicum. From January to February 2014, four focus group interviews with 18 participants were conducted based on purposive sampling. Content analysis was used on the unabridged transcripts to extract themes and develop meaningful categories. Three major themes and eight subthemes were revealed from the focus group interviews. The major themes were "electronic medical record as a learning tool for clinical practicum," "essential functions of academic electronic medical records," and "expected outcomes of academic electronic medical record." Participants expected academic electronic medical records to enhance students' nursing informatics competencies. The findings of this study can inform the process of developing academic electronic medical records for clinical practicum, which will then augment students' informatics competencies.

Nurses' Use of a Web-Based National Guide for Child Health Care.
Comput Inform Nurs. 2016 May;34(5):197-205
Authors: Tell J, Olander E, Anderberg P, Berglund JS
Rikshandboken i Barnhälsovård is a Swedish Web-based guide for child healthcare, providing quality-ensured guidelines and support contributing to equality in child healthcare among all children. In 2015, a new child healthcare program was implemented and made available in this Web-based guide. The aim of this study was to investigate how child healthcare nurses use Rikshandboken i Barnhälsovård and factors affecting its use. The study was a comprehensive Web survey of 2376 child healthcare nurses in Sweden answered by 1309. Statistical processing was performed using descriptive and analytical methods. Rikshandboken i Barnhälsovård was widely used by the respondents, but regional differences and number of years in the profession affected the use. Almost all nurses were satisfied with the usability, content, and design and felt that a national guide for child healthcare is important. This indicates that an established Web-based national guide is an appropriate setting when a new national program is implemented. In order to achieve an equal and equitable child healthcare, it is essential that all nurses use the national guide to provide evidence-based practice. The value of main child healthcare units as regional facilitators in the innovation process of Rikshandboken i Barnhälsovård should not be underestimated.

Nursing Informatics Competency Assessment for the Nurse Leader: The Delphi Study.
J Nurs Adm. 2017 Apr;47(4):212-218
Authors: Collins S, Yen PY, Phillips A, Kennedy MK
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify nursing informatics competencies perceived as relevant and required by nurse leaders.
BACKGROUND: To participate as a full partner in healthcare leadership among rapidly advancing health information technologies (HITs), nurse leaders must attain knowledge of informatics competencies related to their clinical leadership roles and responsibilities. Despite this increased need to engage in HIT-related decision making, a gap remains in validated informatics competencies specific to the needs of nurse leaders.
METHODS: An environmental scan and 3-round survey using Delphi methods used with nurse leaders for competency identification were used.
RESULTS: Between 26 and 41 participants responded to each Delphi round. Most nurse leaders acquired HIT knowledge through on-the-job training. We identified 74 competencies from an initial list of 108 competencies.
CONCLUSION: This work can advance nursing practice to move beyond "on-the-job informatics training" to a more competency-based model of nursing informatics education and practice.

Authors: Garcia-Mayor S, Morilla-Herrera JC, Cuevas-Fernandez-Gallego M, Villa-Estrada F, Porcel-Galvez AM, Sastre-Fullana P, Morales-Asencio JM
PURPOSE: To identify the interventions provided by advanced practice nurses to older people in different contexts with standardized nursing language.
DATA SOURCE: This is a qualitative study. Content analysis was applied to the texts of experimental research papers about advanced practice nursing for older people. Deductive coding through the Nursing Intervention Classification was carried out.
DATA SYNTHESIS: Seventy-three interventions codified with the Nursing Intervention Classification were extracted, mainly related to the behavioral and healthcare system domains, which could be explained due to the need for improving the psychosocial functioning and self-care of these patients to preserve their quality of life.
CONCLUSION AND IMPLICATION FOR NURSING PRACTICE: Advanced practice nurses interventions can be better described, reported, and analyzed along different contexts with standardized languages.
