Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mary A. Curran, RN, PhD (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This book reflects current changes in informatics, while still providing a solid overview of the field. "Over 40 contributors, chosen to represent as fully as possible the breadth and depth of nursing informatics expertise," provide the content.
Purpose: The goal of the book is to provide leadership in educating nurses to be fully cognizant of and adept in the use of information technology tools. The authors want to facilitate the development of "enablers to create and manage new knowledge."
Audience: The book is written for nurses to assist them in their changing healthcare roles. The editors believe that because of the continuing evolution of nursing informatics, nursing roles now include assisting patients in participative decision-making, sharing information electronically with team members, using technology appropriately, and contributing to the future development of informatics.
Features: The first of the book's three sections discusses the discipline of nursing informatics: evolution, education, current and future roles. Section two focuses on the capabilities, approaches, and applications of the enabling technologies. The final section speaks to emerging trends and what the future may hold. To aid the reader in understanding the book's framework, the editors provide a content array. Additional helpful information is included in two appendixes: electronic resources and healthcare websites.
Assessment: The editors continue the tradition of compiling timely and relevant books. This edition is not a repetition of previous content, but an addendum of new information. Because of its depth, breadth, and additive nature, it seems more appropriate for graduate education. Although the level of this book may be out of reach for those unfamiliar with the discipline, it is a well written book that reflects the current state of nursing informatics and shares knowledge needed for future development.
