Fee: 
Free for AMIA members and non-members; no fee.
Presenters: 
Max Topaz, PhD, RN, MA; Gregory Alexander, PhD, RN, FAAN; Susan Hull, MSN, RN-BC, FAMIA; Karen Dunn Lopez, PhD, MPH, RN; Kenrick Cato, PhD, RN, CPHIMS; Karen Monsen, PhD, RN, FAMIA, FAAN; Michael Wang, RN, MBA

In collaboration with AMIA's Nursing Informatics Working Group and the Alliance for Nursing Informatics, the AMIA COVID-19 Webinar Series continues with a presentation highlighting the contributions of nursing informatics.

The lack of a national or global unified response to the COVID-19 pandemic presents health care professionals with the greatest challenge of their careers. As informaticians create systematic responses to a host of issues – eg, creating terminologies, tracking and predicting outbreaks, ensuring practitioners’ personal safety, establishing telemedicine systems, and using AI to develop new diagnostics and treatments – it is critical to exchange information in real time to determine best practices in uncharted territory. During this webinar, nurse informaticians share information about how they are “building the airplane while flying” and using nursing informatics to respond to this global crisis. This webinar does not offer nursing contact hours.

Additional webinars in this Series will be announced shortly and will be produced over the course of several weeks. These webinars are for both members and should-be members of AMIA. Please feel free to pass along to colleagues and promote publicly.

Statement of Purpose

The lack of a national or global unified response to the COVID-19 pandemic presents nurses and health care professionals with the greatest challenge of their careers. As nurse informaticians create systematic responses to a host of issues – e.g., creating/adapting terminologies, tracking symptoms and predicting outbreaks, ensuring practitioners’ personal safety, establishing virtual care systems, and using AI to develop new models for care interventions – it is critical to exchange information in real time to determine best practices in uncharted territory. During this webinar, nurse informaticians, in clinical practice, education, research and policy will share information about how they are “building the airplane while flying” and using nursing informatics to respond to this global crisis.
This webinar does not offer nursing contact hours. 

Learning Objective

After participating in this live activity, the viewer should be better able to:

  • Consider nursing informatics approaches across the country to the COVID-19 pandemic with the potential for application to one’s practice setting

 

About the Series

AMIA's COVID-19 Webinar Series highlights how the informatics community is addressing this global pandemic from all angles. From front-line informaticians and public health informaticists, to clinical and bioinformatics researchers, AMIA's members are uniquely positioned to leverage data and evidence in the fight against COVID-19.

We will look at the pandemic through a health informatics lens and is designed to share informatics responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists will share their specific domain expertise, including clinical informatics, public health informatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, and consumer health informatics. We will also have special emphasis webinars covering topics related to global health, telemedicine, and public policy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
