Call for Chapters - Handbook of Research in Nursing and Clinical Informatics

Proposals Submission Deadline: September 15, 2007
Full Chapters Due: January 15, 2008

A book edited by: Roland Staudinger, Herwig Ostermann, Bettina Staudinger
Institute of Medical Law, Human Resources and Health Politics
University for Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology, Hall/Tyrol, Austria

The field of Nursing Informatics is currently one of the fastest growing areas of medical informatics. Several reasons for this growth can be identified:

  • Through increasing life expectancy and the growing (political) emphasis on the development of social systems, the area of nursing has been able to gain an overall higher status and therefore higher degree of professionalism. This has resulted in fast growing markets in this field, too.
  • A professionalization offensive in applied nursing runs parallel with the development outlined above, the offensive ultimately being thematically controlled as well as driven by advances in nursing sciences. The well-described Theory-Practice-Gap is currently being attempted to be bridged, on the one hand using knowledge transfer and standardization on the other.
  • From this there is an increased necessity for the application of Nursing Informatics whereby the accomplishment of nursing processes has to be supported on the one hand. On the other, both planning data and quality indicators can be derived which may form the basis for the further organizing of the nursing system in a political and structural respect.

Through the compilation of the Handbook of Research in Nursing and Clinical Informatics: Socio-Technical Approaches, a general overview will be given as to the current state of nursing informatics. Particular attention will be given to social, socio-technical and political conditions and the focus of further research and development projects will be detailed. Highlighted in the work will be the core areas of nursing informatics, technical feasibility and functionality. The Handbook will also focus on international perspectives and the challenges that deviations in nursing systems provide and it will serve as a concrete foundation for further research projects and will be a unique comparative work. This new publication may be used as a definitive guide by the scientific community as well as practitioners and operating authorities within nursing infrastructures.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Information and good clinical practice
  • Quality of data and documentation
  • Social impacts of telemedicine
  • Clinical decision systems
  • Technical requirements of NI
  • NI for home care
  • International comparison of NMDS
  • Theory Practice Gap and knowledge transfer
  • NI as a tool supporting nursing assessment
  • Evidence Based Nursing and NI
  • Technical process guided nursing
  • International benchmarks of nursing quality
  • The quality of nursing processes
  • Data needs for national nursing system planning
  • Evaluation systems and NI
  • NDMS as a management information and decision support tool
  • Mobile devices the and nursing process
  • Nursing education and IT curricula integration
  • The role of nursing science in NI
