Nursing Informatics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nursing Informatics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Just come accross the wikipedia entry for nursing informatics & sent the following to a couple of lists:

--

I don't know if any of you have come across the WikiPedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page a free web based encyclopedia, which anyone can edit/contribute to ?

I looked at the entry on nursing informatics http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nursing_Informatics (at least it had one) and found a single sentence
"Nursing Informatics is a specialty of Medical Informatics and deals with the support of nursing by information systems in delivery, documentation, administration and evaluation of patient care."

I have edited it a bit & added the IMIA NI definition, but does anyone else fancy a "collaborative edit" of this page to make the entry comprehensive for anyone wanting to find out about the speciaility?

2 Comments:

  • I have added a few bits to the WIKIpedia NI entry. I would also like to see a collaborative effort from the nursing informatics community on this.

  • The Nursing Informatics entry on Wikipedia is developing rapidly - but we would still like more input and from other interested people.

    Wikipedia also has entries on related topics of interest to users of this blog, including medical/health informatics, open source and FLOSS (free/libre/open source software).
