Nursing Informatics Australia
Nursing Informatics Australia (NIA) is the pre-eminent group of nursing informaticians in Australia. NIA membership is open to all registered nurses and registered midwives. This HISA SIG is a good reference point to learn about the developments in Nursing Informatics both nationally and internationally. Over the last decade the healthcare environment has seen a transformation of work practices and an explosion in the use of information and communication technologies.
NIA aims to promote nursing informatics priorities such as appropriate language, education and ongoing research. It engenders nursing and midwifery to embrace information and communication technologies, and establishes strong foundations for taking these developments forward. It also ensures nursing and midwifery has the data and resources to continue to provide evidence-based, quality, cost-effective and outcome-driven care for patients and clients into the future.
The NI 2020 theme shows nursing professionals as frontline users of digital solutions. In the world of digitally driven, patient-centred healthcare, nurses and midwives are “nurse navigators”.
