Because of the constant advances and dynamics within the nascent field of nursing informatics, many nurses struggle in practice as they continue to try and apply habitual communication practices in the new environment without any critical reflection on, and adaptation of, those practices. Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing Informatics: Concepts and Applications serves as a valuable asset for nurses, administrators and practitioners who want to improve their understanding of nursing informatics. Critiquing fundamental concepts such as evidence based practice, and examining possible applications of such concepts in the contemporary context of nursing informatics, this text offers chapter and case studies focusing on technology's contributions to nursing theory and practice, nursing systems management, and decision-support in nursing.
