Application of Data to Problem-Solving
Nurses use data for different purposes within the healthcare system. First, the nurses would heavily depend on data in implementing safe and quality care to the patients (Kitson et al., 2021). Being able to have data at their disposal allows the nurses to make informed decisions and therefore provide appropriate interventions. In using technology, for instance, nurses would handle patients with greater efficiency and accuracy. The focus scenario within my healthcare institution is using the bedside monitoring systems to keep a record of the patient behaviors and other patterns.
In addition, the system is used to monitor patient responses to different interventions given to them and whether or not they are making progress in the right direction. The system has been used to monitor falls in patients, especially the elderly, who are frail and at greater risk of falls, leading to complications. Significantly, the impact of falls on the patients could be far-fetched, making them stay longer in the hospitals and making them pay even more for their healthcare services (Liu et al., 2019).
When the data is available, the nurses would be able to identify the patients at risk of falls and then provide them with specialized care, which would keep them safe in the long run (Simamora, & Siregar, 2019). Availability of data would also enable the nurses to offer extra precautionary measures to the patients, improving the quality of care. In the long run, the data derived when the systems are used could inform policymakers on the need to invest more in technology for the sake of helping patients realize better outcomes and attaining improved efficiency in operation (McGonigle, & Mastrian, 2017).

Assignment 1 : The Nurse Leader as Knowledge Worker
Posted on: Thursday, June 3, 2021 8:29:46 AM EDT
Assignment 1: The Nurse Leader as Knowledge Worker
In this Assignment, you will consider the evolving role of the nurse leader and how this evolution has led nurse leaders to assume the role of knowledge worker. You will prepare a PowerPoint presentation with an infographic (graphic that visually represents information, data, or knowledge. Infographics are intended to present information quickly and clearly.) to educate others on the role of nurse as knowledge worker.

Review the concepts of informatics as presented in the Resources.
Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.
Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed.

Include one slide that visually represents the role of a nurse leader as knowledge worker.
Your PowerPoint should include the hypothetical scenario you originally shared in the Discussion Forum.
Include all of the following: your examination of the data that you could use, how the data might be accessed/collected, and what knowledge might be derived from that data.
Be sure to incorporate feedback received from your colleagues’ responses. You will need to refer back to the discussion board, reviewing peer responses to your initial post.
Reference Slide ( APA format)
YOU WILL NEED TO REFER TO THE DISCUSSION FORUM AND PEER RESPONSES TO COMPLETE THIS ASSIGNEMNT.
