The TIGER Initiative (Technology Informatics Guiding Educational Reform) Staff Development Collaborative is conducting a short survey to better understand how organizations educate their nurses and nursing students to use technology within their practice environment to deliver safer patient care. They are looking to assemble examples of field-based nursing education that prepares nurses to use all forms of technology and information systems. These examples might teach general computer and informatics skills, teach how to use a specific system/technology solution, or teach others how to be mentors/facilitators.
The TIGER Initiative Staff Development Collaborative is looking for all forms of innovative field-based educational programs, regardless of who is providing the education--e.g., nursing staff/professional development, vendors, information services, colleagues in a peer-to-peer network, and so forth. The responses to the survey will be kept anonymous and confidential. They ask for your contact information only to follow up if you would be interested in providing more details as a case study, as the goal is to collect and share best practices with other nurses.
