  • Feb 2014 Developing a pilot e-mobile app for dementia caregiver support: Lessons learned This paper discusses the development of Story-Call, a pilot e-mobile multimedia App, or application, for community-based dementia caregiver support, designed to offer reassurance, information and services to caregivers, and facilitate supportive efforts and implementation of other interventions by nurses and therapists.
  • Feb 2014 Bibliometrics: Visualizing the Impact of Nursing Research Nurse scientists commonly weigh the impact of their work on the discipline of nursing as well as within the larger healthcare arena. Bibliometrics, a statistical method used in citation and content analysis, is a quantitative approach for calculating output and for analyzing value and merit of scientific output. Bibliometric mapping is a method for visually representing bibliometric data.

Senior Editor Columns

  • Feb 2014 Lest We Forget View an editorial covering the various aspects of the Affordable Care Act.
  • Feb 2014 Big Data in Health Care: An Urgent Mandate to CHANGE Nursing EHRs! The United States spends more per person on health care than any other nation in the world—without obvious evidence of better outcomes. Thus it is no surprise that many people are determined to reduce the cost of care and demonstrate its effectiveness.
  • Feb 2014 Future Thoughts Now Column It is all about the future. What is ‘it’? Speculation by pundits and would-be futurists, that is. If you think about it the future is tantalizingly close, mere milliseconds in front of us, constantly morphing into the present even as we look for the future.
  • Feb 2014 Health Information Technology Research and Searching for the Perfect Technology Model A very brief review of historical health information technology (HIT) research first focused on how particular technologies, like the EHR, were designed and implemented in healthcare organizations. The next phase of HIT research focused on EHR technology use by end-users within healthcare organizations.
  • Feb 2014 Going for Gold It may be that the aftermath of resolutions real and imagined is at the root of my reflection in this editorial, but I feel the need to test my sense of the current state of informatics, at least as I am observing it in Canada.
