Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Clinical information systems (CIS) and associated technologies have become pivotal to the transformation of healthcare delivery in Canada. However, the initiation of future nurses to this onslaught of information technologies has been the focus of relatively few nurse educators. Findings from recent studies, suggest that a minority of Canadian schools of nursing have tackled the challenge of integrating CIS concepts throughout their nursing curricula. The reasons for this lack of integration remains unexplained to a large extent, but anecdotal findings would suggest that there is perhaps a sense of trepidation and a limited understanding of these new tools among educators. Additionally, schools of nursing are possibly just beginning to experience the impact of these technologies on the student experience. Notwithstanding the high degree of computer literacy among the current and future nursing students, there is a need to begin integrating the concepts, functions, and practices associated with the use of CIS into core curricula. This presentation will include an overview of the implications of CIS for nursing education and practice in the near term. Competencies and learning outcomes that should be addressed by educators will be highlighted and examples of CIS content integration into curricula will be illustrated.
