      Purpose/Objectives: Information technologies are being harnessed to deliver efficient and accessible high quality healthcare, and this trend is expected to continue. Increasingly, nurses are at the intersection of these technologies and patient care. Given the growing impact of informatics on nursing practice, it is critical that nurses enter the workforce having developed entry level competence in this area. The purpose of this project is to leverage previous CASN-Infoway work to support and enable nursing faculty to integrate digital health content into undergraduate curricula with the ultimate goal of graduating nurses who are well-prepared to practice in technology enabled environments.

      Methodology/Approach: The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and Canada Health Infoway have partnered on a series of initiatives to prepare new nurses for technology-enabled environments; the first phase was the development and publication of entry-level nursing informatics competencies, followed by the creation of a faculty peer network to mentor nursing colleagues across Canada. This third phase of the partnership has involved reengaging the Digital Health Nursing Faculty Peer Network to further support the integration of entry-to-practice digital competencies into curricula. Over the course of a year, 12 Peer leaders from across Canada with expertise in nursing informatics were engaged to provide knowledge, educational tools and mentorship to fellow faculty through three regional workshops and three online webinars. Each webinar focused on one of CASN-Infoway’s previously developed entry-to-practice competencies. The purpose was to continue to build foundational knowledge of digital health among nursing faculty to increase their baseline capacity. The regional workshops provided an opportunity to go deeper and build a greater depth and breadth of understanding of digital health and included topics such as consumer health solutions and virtual care. By using a “train-the-trainer” approach, this project has been able to leverage efforts to support and educate faculty through strategies developed by faculty who are champions of digital health, thus increasing their perceived value and uptake.

      Finding/Results: Pre and post workshop and webinar evaluations surveys are being conducted to assess the self-identified change in knowledge of, and capacity to, integrate digital health content. The results of these surveys will be presented and their implications will be discussed.

      Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: The reengaged Digital Health Faculty Peer Network has been an innovative and effective mechanism for supporting the integration of digital health content into undergraduate nursing curricula. By enlisting faculty to help disseminate the content and the support tools, this project has been able to reach a cross-country audience who respected the experience and qualifications of their peers.

      140 Character Summary: Leveraging previous CASN-Infoway work to support nursing faculty to integrate digital content into curricula through a faculty peer network.

  • OS26 - Creating Effective Health Care Platforms for the Future (ID 31)

    • Event: e-Health 2017 Virtual Meeting
    • Type: Oral Session

    • OS26.01 - Towards National Nursing Data Standards (ID 382)

      Lynn Nagle, University of Toronto; Toronto/CA

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Purpose/Objectives: This presentation will describe the strategies being utilized nationally to advance nursing data standards adoption, the benefits to be derived, and the current state of adoption.

      Methodology/Approach: Monitoring health system performance and demonstrating nursing’s contribution to clinical outcomes within and between sectors of care necessitates the use of data standards. This presentation will focus on the follow-up activities and outcomes of a nurse leaders’ symposia held in 2016. Building upon the foundations of the action plan established in a 2016 symposium, the 2017 meeting included a broader engagement of nurse leaders and key stakeholders and continued the evolution of strategies to advance the adoption of nursing data standards across Canada. Focused in the areas of clinical practice and administration, research, education and policy, this presentation will describe the strategies being utilized to advance nursing data standards adoption, the benefits to be derived, and the current state of adoption.

      Finding/Results: As clinical information systems and digital health solutions for consumers continue to evolve, the use of standardized nursing data presents an opportunity to have nursing information inform appropriate practice and use of nursing resources. Currently, the documentation of nursing practice: assessments, interventions and outcomes are not easily compared or analyzed within and between care settings because of differences in approaches to documentation, measurement and reporting. Furthermore, these data gathering inconsistencies also limit the capacity to determining the impact of: nursing care within different settings, nurse patient ratios, and staff skill mix on quality and safety outcomes. Monitoring health system performance and demonstrating nursing’s contribution to clinical outcomes within and between sectors of care necessitates the use of data standards.

      Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: This presentation will be of interest to clinicians, decision-makers, and users of clinical data to evaluate care outcomes across the continuum.

      140 Character Summary: Discussion of activities and outcomes of a nurse leaders’ symposia held in 2016 and 2017 focused on advancing the adoption of national nursing data standards.
