Title:
Educational Informaticist: An Emerging Role
Abstract:
Educational Informaticist: An Emerging Role
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Weiner, Elizabeth, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Vanderbilt University
Title:Associate Professor
The ubiquitous nature of computing requires a number of roles that are constantly changing in a variety of settings. Initial growth in the field of nursing informatics has centered primarily on the clinical setting. Much has been written about the systems developed and evaluated, and possible new roles that one can play in the clinical environment. Attention was given to the educational environment during the early nineties, but focused more on competency-based skills in informatics according to program levels of the students. As clinical systems have continued to grow, both clinicians and educators are realizing that growth in the educational arena needs to take place as well. This paper will describe possible roles for educational informaticists that further define nursing while contributing to an overall approach to general healthcare informatics. A model will be presented focusing on the following areas: user development needs, infrastructure needs, educational needs, and research needs. Descriptions will be provided from both an administrative advocacy perspective as well as from a front-line support perspective. In addition, examples drawn from two university settings will be provided in order to guide others who wish to further develop this new role. The concluding argument for educational informatics will define the role as critical in bridging the clash between and among the cultures of academicians, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and technologists. Questions for further consideration will be posed for others who dare to push forward the educational informatics agenda.
