Understanding the Essence of Caring from the Lived Experiences of Filipino Informatics Nurses.

Nurs Sci Q. 2018 04;31(2):166-174

Authors: Macabasag RLA, Diño MJS

Abstract
Caring is considered a unique concept in nursing because it subsumes all intrinsic attributes of nursing as a human helping discipline. Scholars have argued that caring is usually seen as an encounter between nurses and patients, but how about nurses with minimal or absent nurse-patient encounters, like informatics nurses? In this study, we explored the meaning of the phenomenon of caring to present lived experiences of caring, namely caring as actions of coming in between; caring as expressed within embodied relations; and caring and the path traversed by informatics nurses. The informatics nurse-cyborg-patient triad speaks of Filipino informatics nurses' insightful understanding of the phenomenon of caring.

Topics for Continuous Education in Nursing Informatics: Results of a Survey Among 280 Austrian Nurses.

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019;260:162-169

Authors: Ammenwerth E, Hackl WO

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Nurses are increasingly confronted with IT-based systems as part of their daily work. However, they often lack basic competencies in managing these complex systems.
OBJECTIVES: To analyze the need for continuous education in health informatics among Austrian nurses.
METHODS: Survey within five of the largest healthcare organizations in Austria. Overall, 280 nursing practitioners with IT responsibilities and nursing managers from middle and top management participated.
RESULTS: Participants assessed five topics (IT project management, IT in nursing, eHealth, nursing terminologies, and computer science basics) as important for continuous education in health informatics. Top management rated the importance of most topics higher than middle management did. Nursing practitioners gave ratings in between middle and top management.
CONCLUSION: Austrian nursing practitioners with IT responsibilities and nursing managers see a need for continuous education in health informatics. This supports findings of international recommendations of nursing informatics continuous education. There is, however, a lack of suitable opportunities for continuous education in Austria.

Nursing Informaticians Address Patient Safety to Improve Usability of Health Information Technologies.

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019;257:501-507

Authors: Williams A

Abstract
With the introduction of Health Information technology, the potential for unintended consequences can occur. Island Health developed a Quality Assurance review process to evaluate and identify opportunities for system optimization, education and engagement, policy changes, as well as identify unintended consequences of Electronic Health Record (EHR) implementations. The Patient Safety Learning System was utilized to audit and evaluate reported safety events for system breaks and opportunities, practice and policy, as well as workflow implications. The findings were then reported to the reporter, leadership, and through governance structures. This process identified that 242 reported patient safety events in 1 year has resulted in 30 (13.7%) of these events leading to EHR System optimization. Ultimately Island Health's Nurse Informaticists foster a culture of safety through their QA/QI Patient Safety event investigations which improve system usability and ultimately Patient Safety.

Use of the Omaha System to identify musculoskeletal problems in intensive care unit nurses: a case study.

Br J Nurs. 2019 Mar 14;28(5):300-306

Authors: Sezgin D, Esin MN

Abstract
BACKGROUND:: there is a need for a standard terminology to identify and manage occupational risks in intensive care unit (ICU) settings.
AIM:: this study was conducted to investigate the occupational musculoskeletal symptom-related problems of one ICU nurse using the Omaha system.
METHOD:: a case study method was employed. An Evaluation of Knowledge form and Rapid Upper Limb Assessment tools were used to identify musculoskeletal symptoms and ergonomic risks. Three components of the Omaha System were used: Problem Classification Scheme, Intervention Scheme and Problem Rating Scale for Outcomes.
RESULTS:: eight signs/symptoms related to four problems were identified from three domains: environmental (neighbourhood/workplace safety), physiological (pain and neuro-musculoskeletal function), and health-related behaviours (physical activity and healthcare supervision). Interventions were mapped to Omaha System terms, and nursing outcomes were evaluated.
CONCLUSION:: this study presented an example of using the Omaha System in occupational health nursing practice. The Omaha System can be used effectively to identify musculoskeletal problems and related factors of ICU nurses in a standardised and computerised concept. Use of this system could aid prevention of occupational musculoskeletal problems in ICU nurses.

Computerization of primary health care in Brazil: the network of actors.

Rev Bras Enferm. 2019 Mar-Apr;72(2):337-344

Authors: Cavalcante RB, Esteves CJDS, Gontijo TL, Brito MJM, Guimarães EAA, Barbosa SP

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To analyze the network of human and non-human actors involved in the computerization of primary health care in the Brazilian federal government.
METHOD: A qualitative study that used as a theoretical reference the actor-network theory and as a methodological reference the cartography of controversies. Data analysis was carried out using Gephi software, and through the extraction of reports, informed by the actor-network theory.
RESULTS: We found a network of 288 connections among 33 actors, composed mainly of nonhuman influencers of computerization. These actors are distributed throughout 3 inter-related communities, and manage the network by defining obligations, penalties, conflicts and intentionalities, thus influencing the success of the intended computerization.
FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: The network of actors at the federal level generates situations that, in many cases, hamper the successful implementation of a nationwide computerization strategy.

Psychiatric Aeromedical Evacuations of Deployed Active Duty U.S. Military Personnel During Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and New Dawn.

Abstract
Introduction: The primary objective of this study was to describe the demographic, clinical, and attrition characteristics of active duty U.S. military service members who were aeromedically evacuated from Iraq and Afghanistan theaters with a psychiatric condition as the primary diagnosis. The study links the U.S. Transportation Command Regulating and Command and Control Evacuation System (TRAC2ES) data with the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to conduct an examination of the long-term occupational impact of psychiatric aeromedical evacuations on military separations and discharges.
Materials and Methods: Retrospective analyses were conducted on the demographic, clinical, and attrition information of active duty service members (N = 7,023) who received a psychiatric aeromedical evacuation from Iraq or Afghanistan between 2001 and 2013 using TRAC2ES data. Additionally, TRAC2ES database was compared with DMDC data to analyze personal and service demographics, aeromedical evacuation information, and reasons for military separation with the entire 2013 active duty force. Chi-square tests of independence and standardized residuals were used to identify cells with observed frequencies or proportions significantly different than expected by chance. Additionally, OR were calculated to provide context about the nature of any significant relationships.
Results: Compared with the active duty comparison sample, those with a psychiatric aeromedical evacuation tended to be younger, female, white, divorced or widowed, and less educated. They were also more likely to be junior enlisted service members in the Army serving in a Combat Arms military occupational specialty. The primary psychiatric conditions related to the aeromedical evacuation were depressive disorders (25%), adjustment disorders (18%), post-traumatic stress disorder (9%), bipolar disorders (6%), and anxiety disorders (6%). Approximately, 3% were evacuated for suicidal ideation and associated behaviors. Individuals who received a psychiatric aeromedical evacuation were almost four times as likely (53%) to have been subsequently separated from active duty at the time of the data analysis compared with other active duty service members (14%). The current study also found that peaks in the number of aeromedical evacuations coincided with significant combat operational events. These peaks almost always preceded or followed a significant operational event. An unexpected finding of the present study was that movement classification code was not predictive of subsequent reasons for separation from the military. Thus, the degree of clinical supervision and restraint of a service member during psychiatric aeromedical evacuation from deployment proved to be unrelated to subsequent service outcome.
Conclusions: Psychiatric conditions are one of the leading reasons for the aeromedical evacuation of active duty military personnel from the military combat theater. For many active duty military personnel, a psychiatric aeromedical evacuation from a combat theater is the start of a military career-ending event that results in separation from active duty. This finding has important clinical and operational implications for the evaluation and treatment of psychiatric conditions during military deployments. Whenever possible, deployed military behavioral health providers should attempt to treat psychiatric patients in theater to help them remain in theater to complete their operational deployments. Improved understanding of the factors related to psychiatric aeromedical evacuations will provide important clinical and policy implications for future conflicts.

Informatics Competencies for Nurse Leaders: A Scoping Review.

J Nurs Adm. 2019 Jun;49(6):323-330

Authors: Strudwick G, Nagle L, Kassam I, Pahwa M, Sequeira L

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To consolidate informatics competencies for nurse leaders.
BACKGROUND: Nurses in leadership positions with financial and human resource responsibilities have the capacity to shape how technologies are selected, implemented, and used. Many nurse leaders are not equipped with the essential informatics competencies to do so effectively. There have been efforts to identify a set of standard informatics competencies that should be core to every nurse leader's suite of capabilities; nonetheless, these efforts have yet to be disseminated widely.
METHODS: A scoping review was conducted by: 1) identifying the research questions; 2) identifying relevant studies; 3) selecting studies; 4) extracting collected data; and 5) reporting the results.
RESULTS: Fifteen articles were found, and 11 competency themes related to informatics knowledge, informatics skills, and others were identified.
CONCLUSION: Findings of this review can be used to support nursing leaders in their identification of gaps in their informatics knowledge and skill.
