Several people have asked me for information on NI texts.
A few suggestions:
1) Take a look at Linda Thede's textbook, Informatics and Nursing:
Opportunities and Challenges - Lippincott Publishing. A 3rd edition should
be available in January, 2009.
2) Take a look at the CARING website
Checked out the book review recently published in the CARING
newsletter If you go to the website (www.caringonline.org
) and select to
view newsletters....check out the Volume 21, Issue 3 and you will see an
EXCELLENT review of this text.These book reviews were initiated to help guide membership on evaluating new texts within the discipline of Nursing Informatics
3) Take a look at the book "Nursing and Informatics for the 21st Century: An International Look at
Practice, Trends and the Future"? Published by HIMSS,edited by
Weaver, Delaney, Weber & Carr.
