The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Name Institution The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Introduction Healthcare informatics is the study that deals with the data and processes of communication as well as the systems in healthcare. This branch of science gives room for fresh electronic technology as well as information systems where the practitioners can easily access data preserved in computer systems. The study aims at knowing the primary nature of information and communication processes in the healthcare. It also focuses on providing a description for the principles that mold these processes. The aim of this essay is to discuss the tasks of healthcare in relationship to application of health information technologies to enhance safe
I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.

A clinical quality problem might be related directly to a patient or affect them indirectly. Potential practice quality improvement. Using King’s theory of goal attainment to address a quality problem could be used for a wide range of issues. This process starts with (a) gathering data and making an assessment; (b) using the data gathered and creating a diagnosis; (c) creating and implementing interventions; (d) and ending with an evaluation of the process. In this example from the article Integration of Nursing Theories into Practice, (2014), is Mrs. Star who presents to the clinic for an appointment.
154). Orem’s self-care deficit theory is applicable to nursing today as it encompasses the modern holistic view of patient care (Masters, 2015). An example of modern day nursing practice utilizing Orem’s theory is with renal patients. With an ever-increasing elderly population, renal care is one of the prominent current nursing focused issues (O’Shaughnessy, 2014). O’Shaughnessy, 2014, wrote a continuing nursing education article on the importance of Orem’s theory in relation to elderly patients performing peritoneal dialysis.
Diagnostic reasoning is a process of generating and testing hypotheses (Stolper et al., 2011), which is done by transforming medical data into an actionable diagnosis that is important for the functioning of a nurse practitioner (Rajkomar & Dhaliwal, 2011). According to Pelaccia, Triby, and Charlin (2011), clinical reasoning refers to ‘the cognitive process that is necessary to evaluate and manage a patient 's medical problem’. That helps the clinician to make diagnoses and decisions. The diagnostic reasoning process is done by two cognitive systems, the first is called an intuitive system that occurs automatically based on the past experiences and knowledge (Rajkomar & Dhaliwal, 2011). The second system is explained as analytical, in which
The field of nursing has evolved tremendously. According to Hiroko et al. (2014), nurses are charged with connecting updated theories with patient care for advancing the practice of nursing. Having an evidence based practice is instrumental in accomplishing this task. Research has allows new information to be gathered pertaining to different health care issues.
The idea of family centred care was first mentioned in the Platt report of 1959, then reiterated by Casey’s Model of Nursing 1988 which referred to allowing parents to complete the ‘basic’ cares whilst the nurse supports and educates the parents. The Institute for Patient- and Family-Centred Care (IPFCC) outline the core concepts as dignity and respect, information sharing, participation and collaboration. Family centred care is about “Bringing the perspectives of patients and families directly into the planning, delivery, and evaluation of health care, and thereby improving its quality and safety.” (IPFCC,
The topic that I have chosen to research relates to nurse’s experience in caring for terminally ill patients and their families. Evidence Based Practice in Nursing, Ellis, P (2013) 2nd Ed London Sage Literature search My primary approach to sourcing reliable research data was to use the online databases Cinahl and Medline. Table 1 shows the process of searching for a suitable research topic to critique. The search words consisted of “nurses’ attitudes”, “patients” and “death” with the number of results from each word. Table 1 Database / word searched Cinahl
Write a synopsis about the development of nursing research and knowledge. Nursing research is developed on the foundation of evidence-based practice (EBP). Nurse researchers evaluate EBP accordingly to ensure the best practice. Researchers usually use a PICOT question format to develop research questions. The PICOT stands for population, intervention, comparison, outcome, and time.
