Week 4 assignment
Using the
Data/Information/Knowledge/Wisdom Continuum
Have you ever gone online to search for a journal article on
a specific topic? It is amazing to see the large number of journals that are
available in the health care field. When you view the library in its entirety,
you are viewing untapped data. Until you actually research for your particular
topic, there is little structure. Once you have narrowed it down, you have
information and once you apply the information, you have knowledge. Eventually,
after thoughtful research and diligent practice, you reach the level of
wisdomknowledge applied in meaningful ways.
Are there areas in your practice that you believe should be
more fully explored? The central aims of nursing informatics are to manage and
communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. This continuum represents
the overarching structure of nursing informatics. In this Assignment, you
develop a research question relevant to your practice area and relate how you
would work through the progression from data to information, knowledge, and
wisdom.
To prepare:
Review the information in Figure 62 in Nursing Informatics
and the Foundation of Knowledge.
Develop a clinical question related to your area of practice
that you would like to explore.
Consider what you currently know about this topic. What
additional information would you need to answer the question?
Using the continuum of data, information, knowledge, and
wisdom, determine how you would go about researching your question.
Explore the available databases in the Walden Library.
Identify which of these databases you would use to find the information or data
you need.
Once you have identified useful databases, how would you go
about finding the most relevant articles and information?
Consider how you would extract the relevant information from
the articles.
How would you take the information and organize it in a way
that was useful? How could you take the step from simply having useful
knowledge to gaining wisdom?
By Day 7 of Week 4
Write a 3- to 4-page paper that addresses the following:
Summarize the question you developed, and then relate how
you would work through the four steps of the data, information, knowledge,
wisdom continuum. Be specific.
Identify the databases and search words you would use.
Relate how you would take the information gleaned and turn
it into useable knowledge.
Can informatics be used to gain wisdom? Describe how you
would progress from simply having useful knowledge to the wisdom to make
decisions about the information you have found during your database search.
Your paper must also include a title page, an introduction,
a summary, and a reference page

Week 6 assignment
Assignment:
Application: Adoption of New Technology Systems
As a nurse, you can have a great impact on the success or
failure of the adoption of EHRs. It is important for nurses to understand their
role as change agents and the ways they can influence others when addressing
the challenges of changing to a drastically different way of doing things.
Everett Rogers, a pioneer in the field of the diffusion of
innovations, identified five qualities that determine individual attitudes
towards adopting new technology (2003). He theorized that individuals are
concerned with:
Relative advantage: The individual adopting the new
innovation must see how it will be an improvement over the old way of doing things.
Compatibility with existing values and practices: The
adopter must understand how the new innovation aligns with current practices.
Simplicity: The adopter must believe he or she can easily
master the new technology; the more difficult learning the new system appears,
the greater the resistance that will occur.
Trialability: The adopter should have the opportunity to
play around with the new technology and explore its capabilities.
Observable results: The adopter must have evidence that the
proposed innovation has been successful in other situations.
Note: You are not required to purchase Rogers book or
pursue further information regarding his list of five qualities. The
information provided here is sufficient to complete this Assignment. The full
reference for Rogers work is provided below the due date on this page.
For this Assignment, you assume the role of a nurse
facilitator in a small hospital in upstate New York. You have been part of a
team preparing for the implementation of a new electronic health records
system. Decisions as to the program that will be used have been finalized, and
you are now tasked with preparing the nurses for the new system. There has been
an undercurrent of resistance expressed by nurses, and you must respond to their
concerns. You have a meeting scheduled with the nurses 1 week prior to the
training on the new EHR system. Consider how you can use the five qualities
outlined by Rogers (2003) to assist in preparing the nurses for the upcoming
implementation.
To prepare
Review the Learning Resources this week about successful
implementations of EHRs.
Consider how you would present the new EHR system to the
nurses to win their approval.
Reflect on the five qualities outlined by Rogers. How would
addressing each of those areas improve the likelihood of success?
By Day 7 of Week 6
Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following:
Using Rogers (2003) theory as a foundation, outline how you
would approach the meeting with the nurses. Be specific as to the types of information
or activities you could provide to address each area and include how you would
respond to resistance.
Analyze the role of nurses as change agents in facilitating
the adoption of new technology.

Week 8 assignment
Assignment: Creating
a Flowchart
Workflow analysis aims to determine workflow patterns that
maximize the effective use of resources and minimize activities that do not add
value. There are a variety of tools that can be used to analyze the workflow of
processes and clarify potential avenues for eliminating waste. Flowcharts are a
basic and commonly used workflow analysis method that can help highlight areas
in need of streamlining.
In this Assignment, you select a common event that occurs
regularly in your organization and create a flowchart representing the
workflow. You analyze the process you have diagrammed and propose changes for
improvement.
To prepare:
Identify a common, simple event that frequently occurs in
your organization that you would like to evaluate.
Consider how you would design a flowchart to represent the
current workflow.
Consider what metrics you would use to determine the
effectiveness of the current workflow and identify areas of waste.
To complete:
Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following:
Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected.
(Review the Sample Workflow of Answering a Telephone in an Office document
found in this weeks Learning Resources for an example.)
Next, in your paper:
Explain the process you have diagrammed.
For each step or decision point in the process, identify the
following:
Who does this step? (It can be several people.)
What technology is used?
What policies and rules are involved in determining how,
when, why, or where the step is executed?
What information is needed for the execution of this step?
Describe the metric that is currently used to measure the
soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?
Describe any areas where improvements could occur and
propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
Summarize why it is important to be aware of the flow of an
activity.
Remember to include a cover page, introduction, and summary
for your paper

Week 11 assignment
Assignment: Health
Information Patient Handout

this Assignment, you design a health information document on a topic that is of
interest to you.
To prepare:
Select a health issue of interest to you.
Identify the audience or population that you seek to educate
about this issue.
Search the Internet to find credible sites containing
information about your selected topic.
Review the two health literacy websites listed in this
weeks Learning Resources. Focus on strategies for presenting information.
To complete:

selected.
Include a cover page.
Include an introduction that provides:
An explanation of your issue and why you selected it
A description of the audience you are addressing
In the handout itself:

attention of the intended audience.
Include a description of the health issue and additional
content that will enhance your message (i.e., key terms and definitions,
graphics, illustrations, etc.).
Recommend four or five sites that provide clear, valuable,
and reliable information on the topic.
