Develop a 5- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:
· Explain the concept of a knowledge worker.
· Define and explain nursing informatics and highlight the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.
Develop a simple infographic to help explain these concepts.
Present the hypothetical scenario you originally shared in the Discussion Forum. Hypothetical scenario shared WAS:
(Nurses play a pivotal role in delivering and maintaining quality care to their patients. This also includes promoting injury prevention and patient safety. Speaking from experience, we may be so quick to judge and assume a patient is not at risk for falls due to them having a steady gait or wearing non-skid socks however that is not always the case. All patients whether they are able to ambulate independently with a steady/unsteady gait are potential for falls. Predictive analytics can assist with these situations where an analysis of the patient’s EMR is reviewed. Past medical history , current or past medications such as hypertension or psychotropic medications and previous falls are identified in order to formulate a risk for falls assessment and initiate efforts to prevent falls.)
Include your examination of the data you could use, how the data might be accessed/collected, and what knowledge might be derived from the data. Be sure to incorporate feedback received from your colleagues’ replies.
FEEDBACK FROM COLLEAGUES:
In response to your discussion post, I agree that healthcare professionals are responsible for understanding a patient’s past medical history along with the medications they are currently taking. In addition to unfamiliar settings, tests, and treatments that make an individual’s gait unsteady, patients are at an increased risk for falls.
Free-text documents such as nursing notes, which contain relevant clinical information, can assist clinicians in preventing patient falls. There is evidence that narrative notes in clinicians’ clinical notes contain pertinent information related to fall risk and prevention (What can we learn from HER nursing notes? A text mining study, n.d.).
Michelle, I think you bring up a great point on how predictive analytics can help prevent falls for patients. Predictive analytics is emerging as a transformative tool that will allow healthcare professionals deliver more proactive and preventative treatment options (Muniasamy et al., 2019).
