Virtual Event

Three programs were developed for the completion of an informatics nurse specialist track using the specialization path of the National Nursing Career Progression Program in the Philippines. The basic, advanced, and informatics nurse specialist programs were prepared to contain (1) a program description, (2) pre-requisite requirements, (3) program objectives, (4) course outline based on the competencies identified, and (5) expected competencies to be met. In addition, course outlines were adopted from the knowledge and skill sets of the American Nurses Association’s (ANA) and International Medical Informatics Association - Nursing Informatics (IMIA-NI) Special Interest Group. Sections of analysis were found to be useful as a basis for benchmarking the informatics nursing specialist programs in the Philippines. This webinar will share key characteristics identified along with health informatics components infused into country specific nursing programs. Theories and models associated with informatics nursing practice will also be described.  Presented by John Francis Faustorilla Jr., DNS, University of the Philippines, Manila. Moderated by Toria Shaw, MSW, HIMSS TIGER Staff Liaison, Manager of Clinical Informatics.
