Abstract
This study was undertaken in a surgical center specializing in oncology, and it aimed to identify nursing activities performed during the perioperative period and to classify and validate intervention activities according to the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC). A survey of activities was conducted using records and by direct observation of nursing care across four shifts. Activities were classified as NIC nursing interventions using the cross-mapping technique. The list of interventions was validated by nursing professionals in workshops. Forty-nine interventions were identified: 34 of direct care and 15 of indirect care. Identifying nursing interventions facilitates measuring the time spent in their execution, which is a fundamental variable in the quantification and qualification of nurses' workloads.

A survey of student nurses' and midwives' experiences of learning to use electronic health record systems in practice.

Nurse Educ Pract. 2013 Sep;13(5):437-41

Authors: Baillie L, Chadwick S, Mann R, Brooke-Read M

Abstract
AIM: The study aimed to investigate student nurses' and midwives' experiences of learning to use electronic health records (EHR) in practice.
BACKGROUND: Good record keeping and documentation are integral to nursing and midwifery practice. As EHRs become more widespread, student nurses and midwives need opportunities to access and learn how to use them in practice.
METHOD: A survey of nursing and midwifery students was conducted using questionnaires (n = 215) and three focus groups: one with midwifery students (n = 6); one with mental health nursing students (n = 5) and one with adult nursing students (n = 6). The University research ethics committee approved the study. The questionnaire data were analysed using SPSS v19. The focus group data were analysed thematically following transcription.
RESULTS: The results presented relate to two themes: 1) Preparation for using EHRs and skills development; 2) Access to EHRs and involvement. Students had variable experiences in relation to opportunities to access and use EHRs, training on EHR systems used in practice and guidance from mentors. Some mentors had concerns about students' legitimacy to access EHRs and verification of students' EHR entries was a challenging issue in some areas.
CONCLUSION: To promote opportunities for students to develop competence in using EHRs in practice, training on EHR systems in use, and clear processes for authorised access, are needed. Following the survey, the University and practice partners collaboratively established formalised EHR training for students with clear governance procedures for access and use.

Chief nurse executives need contemporary informatics competencies.

Nurs Econ. 2013 Nov-Dec;31(6):277-87; quiz 288

Authors: Simpson RL

Abstract
Using the Informatics Organizing Research Model (Effken, 2003) to add context to the information gleaned from ethnographic interviews of seven chief nurse executives (CNEs) currently leading integrated delivery systems, the author concluded nurse executives can no longer depend exclusively on American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) competencies as they outsource their responsibility for information technology knowledge to nurse informaticians, chief information officers, and physicians. Although AONE sets out a specific list of recommended information technology competencies for system CNEs, innovative nursing practice demands a more strategic, broader level of knowledge. This broader competency centers on the reality of CNEs being charged with creating and implementing a patient-centered vision that drives health care organizations' investment in technology. A new study identifies and validates the gaps between selected CNEs' self-identified informatics competencies and those set out by AONE (Simpson, 2012).

Innovation in transformative nursing leadership: nursing informatics competencies and roles.

Nurs Leadersh (Tor Ont). 2012 Dec;25(4):14-26

Abstract
In a recent brief to the Canadian Nurses Association's National Expert Commission on the Health of Our Nation, the Academy of Canadian Executive Nurses (ACEN) discussed leadership needs in the Canadian healthcare system, and promoted the pivotal role of nursing executives in transforming Canada's healthcare system into an integrated patient-centric system. Included among several recommendations was the need to develop innovative leadership competencies that enable nurse leaders to lead and advance transformative health system change. This paper focuses on an emerging "avant-garde executive leadership competency" recommended for today's health leaders to guide health system transformation. Specifically, this competency is articulated as "state of the art communication and technology savvy," and it implies linkages between nursing informatics competencies and transformational leadership roles for nurse executive. The authors of this paper propose that distinct nursing informatics competencies are required to augment traditional executive skills to support transformational outcomes of safe, integrated, high-quality care delivery through knowledge-driven care. International trends involving nursing informatics competencies and the evolution of new corporate informatics roles, such as chief nursing informatics officers (CNIOs), are demonstrating value and advanced transformational leadership as nursing executive roles that are informed by clinical data.

Abstract
While myriad forces are changing the face of contemporary healthcare, one could argue that nothing will change the way nursing is practiced more than current advances in technology. Indeed, technology is changing the world at warp speed and nowhere is this more evident than in healthcare settings. This article identifies seven emerging technologies that will change the practice of nursing; three skill sets nurses will need to develop to acquire, use, and integrate these emerging technologies; and four challenges nurse leaders will face in integrating this new technology.

Nursing informatics year in review.

Nurs Adm Q. 2013 Apr-Jun;37(2):136-43

Authors: Carrington JM, Tiase VL

Abstract
Nurses' role in patient care has evolved and so has their role in the use of technology to improve health care delivery. Nursing informatics research seeks to study the science of nursing, computer technology, and information science to enhance the quality of nursing practice. In an effort to increase patient safety and reduce health care-associated costs, nursing administrators have been challenged to incorporate technology and nursing practice. Unfortunately, health care institutions may not benefit from this body of work, as nursing informatics research associated with increased patient safety and cost containment may not be readily accessible for nursing administrators. The purpose of this study was to present the findings of a nursing informatics literature review and highlight those publications seen as most influential in the last year. In addition, we seek identify common topics and emerging themes in nursing informatics published research.

The Omaha System: a systematic review of the recent literature.

J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2014 Jan-Feb;21(1):163-70

Authors: Topaz M, Golfenshtein N, Bowles KH

Abstract
BACKGROUND: The Omaha System (OS) is one of the oldest of the American Nurses Association recognized standardized terminologies describing and measuring the impact of healthcare services. This systematic review presents the state of science on the use of the OS in practice, research, and education.
AIMS: (1) To identify, describe and evaluate the publications on the OS between 2004 and 2011, (2) to identify major trends in the use of the OS in research, practice, and education, and (3) to suggest areas for future research.
METHODS: Systematic search in the largest online healthcare databases (PUBMED, CINAHL, Scopus, PsycINFO, Ovid) from 2004 to 2011. Methodological quality of the reviewed research studies was evaluated.
RESULTS: 56 publications on the OS were identified and analyzed. The methodological quality of the reviewed research studies was relatively high. Over time, publications' focus shifted from describing clients' problems toward outcomes research. There was an increasing application of advanced statistical methods and a significant portion of authors focused on classification and interoperability research. There was an increasing body of international literature on the OS. Little research focused on the theoretical aspects of the OS, the effective use of the OS in education, or cultural adaptations of the OS outside the USA.
CONCLUSIONS: The OS has a high potential to provide meaningful and high quality information about complex healthcare services. Further research on the OS should focus on its applicability in healthcare education, theoretical underpinnings and international validity. Researchers analyzing the OS data should address how they attempted to mitigate the effects of missing data in analyzing their results and clearly present the limitations of their studies.
