Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) As the health record becomes more computerized, datasets are quickly becoming the next tool of the professional nurse. Already, thanks to the United Nations and World Health Organization data initiatives, the world is rapidly acquiring increased Internet access to governmental databases all over the world. Online search tools are being designed to effectively use these datasets to easily deliver information. The challenge is to know where to find certain data, and how to use it appropriately. This presentation will demonstrate through static screenshots of selected Internet sources how to effectively use publically available databases to support professional nursing practice. Cautions about the need for public scrutiny and verification of such datasets, methodology, and sources and potential misapplication of data will be reviewed.
