About this Textbook

This significantly revised 5th edition provides nurses with a practical guide to the fundamental concepts of digital health from a nursing perspective. Nursing informatics has never been more important as contemporary healthcare continues to experience tremendous technological advances. The nursing profession is ideally positioned as a key enabler for the design and adoption of emerging eHealth models of care and quality outcomes. The book also features real world examples to illustrate the theory and encourages readers to think critically about their current practices and how they can potentially integrate relevant theories and techniques into their future practice to advance integrated care. 

Introduction to Nursing Informatics is designed for use as a primer for practicing nurses and students in undergraduate programs of study and includes contributions from leading international experts who have practiced in the field over a number of years. The information is presented and integrated in a purposeful manner to encourage readers to explore the key concepts of nursing practice, digital health, health information management and its relationship to informatics.

It offers plenty of vocabulary and explanations to help nurses and nursing students understand many new and complex technological concepts.” (Karen OGrady, Doody's Book Reviews, June 4, 2021)
