Nursing Informatics 2020 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Peter   
Friday, 15 February 2008

Several CHIRAD members were involved in the writing and editing of 'Nursing Informatics 2020: Towards Defining Our Own Future", published by IOS Press (>>> ).

The book forms the Proceedings of the  NI2006 Post Congress Conference, which was held in Korea in June 2006, immediately following the NI2006 9th International Congress on Nursing Informatics. The book is edited by, among others, CHIRAD members Peter Murray and Scott Erdley, while other CHIRAD members (Karl Oyri and Graham Wright) contributed to the event and to some of the chapters.

As Peter notes in the Foreword (written in his capacity as IMIA Vice President for Working Groups and Special Interest Groups): 

Over the past three years, Heather Strachan, immediate past Chair of IMIA-NI, and myself have been members of the IMIA Strategic Planning Taskforce ... As part of the work of the Taskforce, we had to think about what its members would like to see IMIA being and doing in the year 2015. It seemed natural, therefore, for IMIA-NI to formally think about the future of nursing, of nursing informatics, and the needs of both our own organizations and the wider nursing community. Hence, it was an opportune time to use the NI2006 Post Congress Conference to focus on these discussions; and, as nurses always like to think a little further ahead than their colleagues, we selected 2020 as our target date. ...

GGG the original 3g - Graham's Great and Good Interviews

Graham Wright has conducted the first of a sseries of iinterviews with the 'great and the good' from the world of health informatics. They were conducted at medinfo2007 in Brisbane and are on the website (>>> )

Many of our health informatics colleagues form around the world agreed to be interviewed - and the results are available for anyone to listen to as mp3 files (maybe technically not quite podcasts). The interviews will act as a valuable resource for the international health informatics community, and cover people with diverse expertise in many aspects of health informatics.

Further interviews will be conducted at future health informatics events - hopefully, starting at MIE2008
