TIGER Releases Study Aimed at Enhancing Nursing Informatics Education

The Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) Initiative Foundation has released a new leadership collaborative report, The Leadership Imperative: TIGER's Recommendations for Integrating Technology to Transform Practice andEducation (2014). 

Focused on both practice and technology, the report provides valuable information, tools and resources for nursing leaders to access and use as they integrate technology into practice and education. 

This TIGER Leadership Collaborative Report is the latest in a series of papers aimed at identifying what every nurse needs to understand about nursing informatics.

It resulted from the continued recognition and importance of strong leadership to fulfill the TIGER vision and mission, of advancing the integration of health informatics to transform practice education and consumer engagement.

The forward, written by Angela Barron McBride, PhD, RN, FAAN, author of The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders, states,

"The question for every nurse and every hospital board is how you go about promoting transformational change in which the emphasis is not on transitory, isolated performance improvements by individuals, but on sustained, assimilated, comprehensive change of the whole (Lukas et al., 2007) and this report offers one answer:  nurse leaders knowledgeable about how information technology can help redesign practices so that they are standardized, evidence-based and clinically integrated, and reinforce the values of a caring culture."

This most recent report is the latest in a series of papers aimed at identifying what every nurse needs to understand about nursing informatics. Topics covered in the reports to date include standards, competencies, faculty development, usability principles, virtual learning, and consumer empowerment.

The  new report also provides  additional insights into how trends and pressures-rapid deployment of technology, the demand for quality, patient engagement, population-based care management, and required cost reduction-have accelerated the need for nurse leaders to  not only understand these issues, but also, maximize the opportunities they present.
