Overview

With the first look at how and why information technology is evoking revolutionary changes in nursing at every dimension, this book chronicles the huge historical shift occurring in nursing linked to the explosion of electronic health record (EHR) national strategies and health policies occurring around the world. Edited by Charlotte A. Weaver, PhD, RN; Connie White Delaney, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI; Patrick Weber, MA, RN and Robyn L. Carr, RGON, this book presents a thoughtful examination of nursing practice, professionalism, education and new executive leadership roles against the backdrop of informatics. While the book's primary benchmark is the development and status of nursing in the U.S., there are in-depth and richly descriptive contributions from over 17 countries and 84 international authors. Capturing the nursing revolution that is being driven by the massive infusion of information technology into healthcare, the book features 30 case studies that draw from the best innovative work occurring across the four corners of the world, allowing for comparisons across industrial, developed and developing nations.
