INMO Course 1 Introduction to Nursing Informatics

Introduction to Nursing Informatics

This one-day workshop is aimed at nurses and midwives who wish to acquire foundation knowledge on nursing informatics and how it can impact upon their practice. The purpose of this programme is to act as an introduction to the topic and explain how the discipline relates to eHealth. Nurses as the information navigators in health and social care are accountable for a significant contribution to health care service provision. Nurses provide a dual role and practice both independently and as part of the multidisciplinary team. Key areas that this workshop will focus on include eHealth, mHealth and integrated care; the role of informatics in nursing; and an overview how informatics can assist in the delivery of new models of health care delivery

INMO Course 2 Introduction to the International Classification for Nursing Practice

This one-day workshop is aimed at nurses and midwives who wish to acquire foundation knowledge on the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP)®. The workshop will engage with participants on the uptake and use of ICNP codes with planned nursing documentation to facilitate standardised reference sets for inclusion in future Electronic Health Records (EHR). The programme will act as an introduction to the topic and explain the nuts and bolts of standardised language. There will also be some discussion on how clinical reference terminology relates to achieving interoperability. Related health informatics standards will also be introduced, specifically how the standard ISO 18104 Health Informatics – Categorial Structures for Representation of Nursing Diagnosis and Nursing Actions in Terminological Systems links to ICNP®.
