NURS659 Week 7 Discussion Prompts 1 & 2

Discussion Prompt 1

Discuss the role of informatics in home health care and related community-based systems. What are your experiences with such settings? Do you expect to have more contact with them in the future?

Discussion Prompt 2

Monitoring population health status is a central public health activity. A variety of survey systems, such as the CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), as well as state and national reporting systems, such as the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), and National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS) provide public health practitioners with the ability to assess health trends, identify and respond to emerging health hazards, and guide development of interventions and policies that address serious health conditions such as obesity, smoking, and diabetes. With the proliferation of EHRs within acute and ambulatory care systems, how much of this survey activity do you think can be folded in under routine data collection and exchange activities?

Week 7 NIH Protecting Human Research Participants Training

When graduate nursing students engage in scholarly activities and research, they must take steps to ensure that human subjects are protected. This process includes an initial introduction to the role of an organization’s Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB reviews proposed scholarly activities to ensure that human subjects do not suffer any undue physical, financial, or psychological harm.

As a graduate nursing student at WCU, you are required to submit documentation of completion of an online certificate program entitled “Protecting Human Research Participants,” which is available from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This program is available at no cost and takes approximately one to three hours to complete. Once you have completed the online program, you can download a computer-generated certificate.

You will need to submit a copy of this certificate of completion to Blackboard for this assignment. The certificate is valid for two years. Keep a copy of the certificate on hand for future coursework.
