Assignment: The Nurse Leader as Knowledge Worker NURS 5051

The term “knowledge worker” was first coined by management consultant and author Peter Drucker in his book, The Landmarks of Tomorrow (1959). Drucker defined knowledge workers as high-level workers who apply theoretical and analytical knowledge, acquired through formal training, to develop products and services. Does this sound familiar?

Nurses are very much knowledge workers. What has changed since Drucker’s time are the ways that knowledge can be acquired. The volume of data that can now be generated and the tools used to access this data have evolved significantly in recent years and helped healthcare professionals (among many others) to assume the role of knowledge worker in new and powerful ways.

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.

Reference: Drucker, P. (1959). The landmarks of tomorrow. New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers.

Discussion: Interaction Between Nurse Informaticists and Other Specialists

Nature offers many examples of specialization and collaboration. Ant colonies and bee hives are but two examples of nature’s sophisticated organizations. Each thrives because their members specialize by tasks, divide labor, and collaborate to ensure food, safety, and general well-being of the colony or hive.

Of course, humans don’t fare too badly in this regard either. And healthcare is a great example. As specialists in the collection, access, and application of data, nurse informaticists collaborate with specialists on a regular basis to ensure that appropriate data is available to make decisions and take actions to ensure the general well-being of patients.

In this Discussion, you will reflect on your own observations of and/or experiences with informaticist collaboration. You will also propose strategies for how these collaborative experiences might be improved.

To Prepare:

Review the Resources and reflect on the evolution of nursing informatics from a science to a nursing specialty.
Consider your experiences with nurse Informaticists or technology specialists within your healthcare organization.
By Day 3 of Week 3

Post a description of experiences or observations about how nurse informaticists and/or data or technology specialists interact with other professionals within your healthcare organization. Suggest at least one strategy on how these interactions might be improved. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain the impact you believe the continued evolution of nursing informatics as a specialty and/or the continued emergence of new technologies might have on professional interactions.

By Day 6 of Week 3

Respond to at least two of your colleagues* on two different days, offering one or more additional interaction strategies in support of the examples/observations shared or by offering further insight to the thoughts shared about the future of these interactions.

*Note: Throughout this program, your fellow students are referred to as colleagues.

Trends in Population Health

What about critical scenarios? What happens if you ask Siri, I’m depressed, and what if that’s a
critical scenario where someone should be accessing emergency care. There’s a good example of an
ethical societal issue that we haven’t solved. So there’s certainly a lot of capability, but
there’s also a lot of potential controversy and some very, very critical issues as a society that
we’re going to have to handle.

GRANT SHEVCHIK: Insurance companies are sort of watch dogs. Should they stay a watchdog, or should
they be helping us in some other way? They have a lot of data. They have a lot of information. Can
they help us with their information? I don’t have the answers to this, but I encourage you, as you
enter into seperate fields, as you go to work for different companies, maintain your ties, that
sort of thing, because you’ll never know. You met guys working together in two different segments
of health care may really be able to make a big difference.

SUZANNE PAONE: The role of providers, insurance companies, and consumers is changing significantly.
Consumers are more engaged in their health. My feeling is because they’re paying more
out-of-pocket, frankly, insurance companies are beginning to shift more of the cost burden to the
consumer, which is basically creating an educated consumer, as we see in other industries.

Therefore, providers need to be more open, more transparent, more engaged directly with consumers.
What’s happening in terms of informatics is that we start to see applications evolving to keep up
with this. We see personal health records evolving. We see tracker applications, so that consumers
can know what’s going on, collect data, talk to their providers proactively about their health.

GRANT SHEVCHIK: One of my father’s best expressions was numbers don’t lie, but liars use numbers.
Things to be careful of in general are percentages.

Somebody said they had 500% increase, you’re going, oh, my. But guess what? It went from one to
five. It’s not like there were 5,000 of them. There were five.

Begin to get a feeling for numbers. If you’re going to be IT and you can’t relate to numbers,
that’s like not relating to kids and running a pediatric practice. A lot of your projects during
this program are going to help you with that, but you need to be to somehow begin to comprehend and
to grab things a little bit better, and grasp numbers and what they mean and don’t mean a little
bit better.

SUZANNE PAONE: I would like students who are preparing to be transformative leaders in the industry
to understand that informatics are a set of tools, and that the important use of informatics has to
do with how you use those tools strategically. Thinking about your customers, thinking about the
outcomes that you’re trying to achieve, the tools will keep changing. Technology tools to change
all the time. Bright leaders, smart leaders, transformative leaders, know how to
