Skill needs for nurses in their role as health informatics professionals: A survey in the context of global health informatics education

ScienceDirect - International Journal of Medical Informatics : Skill needs for nurses in their role as health informatics professionals: A survey in the context of global health informatics education

Interesting article from Australian colleagues Sebastian Garde, David Harrison and Evelyn Hovenga which reports a survey of 82 nurses via a web-based questionnaire on the preferred knowledge/skills set for health informatics professionals. Among others, the questionnaire is based on the International Medical Informatics Association's (IMIA) set of recommendations on education and IMIA's scientific map. Benner's five levels of competencies were applied to measure the degree of competency required for each skill/knowledge.

The paper suggests various areas not covered in the IMIA recommendations as being important for nursing education internationally.
