Athabasca University (Canada) Seeking Translational Nursing Research Chair in eHealth Literacy

Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions (AIHS) is sponsoring a Translational Research Chair position at Athabasca University that will bridge interests in health information technology, electronic communication and knowledge translation to the public and help create a systematic approach to the study of eHealth literacy.

The Nursing Research Chair in eHealth Literacy will advance understanding of all facets of eHealth literacy with particular focus on the public’s actions related to procuring, evaluating and using eHealth information and electronically generated self-health data, and the health care professionals’ role in communicating, educating and empowering the use of eHealth information and self-health data. As a researcher in eHealth literacy, the Chair will build an integrated research team that will make an impact on the health of Canadians and on global health knowledge. Working in collaboration with other institutional partners in related fields, there is potential for developing synergies related to areas such as health promotion, disease prevention and analytics and personalized medicine. There is also potential for synergy with Athabasca University’s Canada Research Chair in Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Management.

The appointment will be made at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level, depending upon the qualifications of the successful candidate.

Athabasca University develops and maintains an environment that supports equitable working conditions for individuals traditionally unrepresented in universities and is committed to employment equity, encouraging applications from women, indigenous people, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

For more information, please contact Khaleeda Jamal or Cameron Geldart at (604) 926-0005 or forward your CV, a letter of introduction and the names of three referees, in confidence, to khaleeda[at]thegeldartgroup.com

In order to conduct research and quality improvement, hospitals need excellent clinical and research data. In this paper, the authors describe installing a data management system throughout their hospital with an aim toward helping similar hospitals plan for their own data management system uptake. The findings suggest that installing the REDCap system was relatively inexpensive and was able to be completed by the staff already working at the hospital. Furthermore, the authors found that training for users helped with uptake and use of the system.

AHIMA (www.ahima.org) cordially invites you to submit your contribution to the 2015 American Health Information Management (AHIMA) Annual Convention; the event will be held on September 26-30, 2015 in New Orleans, USA. The Call for Participation is intended to highlight the diverse interests and areas that broadly constitute the fields of Health Information Management and Health Informatics. The AHIMA Annual Convention offers health information management and health informatics practitioners, educators, students, and researchers the opportunity to share their expertise and insights and to disseminate their research, findings and recommendations. For 2015, AHIMA seeks submissions describing health information management and health informatics research and analytical approaches as well as the day to day practice and application of health information management and health informatics. The conference provides a venue for forward looking, thought-provoking, and groundbreaking discussions. The educational sessions at AHIMA 2015 are designed to offer training, information, and updates on issues vital to health information management and health informatics in the context of an ever changing and often challenging environment.

AHIMA will organize accepted submissions into selected tracks and themes. Individual submissions that are not selected for presentations or panels may be invited to participate in the Poster or other related Networking of CEU events. The sessions will help practitioners identify and embrace best practices, leverage lessons learned, and adopt state-of-the-art solutions; allow educators and students to stay up to date on current advancements; and help regulators and policymakers make sound decisions about health information management and health informatics. Some sessions will emphasize conceptual and theoretical advances relating to the structure, collection, processing, management, maintenance and use of health data. These sessions will present analysis, innovation, and research on the fundamental underpinnings of health information management and health informatics.

Please submit a formal proposal to be considered as a speaker in the pre-convention tutorials, convention educational sessions (presentations and panels) or to have a graphic presentation featured in the Poster Showcase.

From the IMIA General Assembly 2014

The IMIA General Assembly 2014 meeting was held in New Delhi, India on 31 October, in conjunction with the APAMI2014 conference. A report will be sent to all IMIA GA members and official representatives. However, some news items that may be of wider interest include:

IMIA Board Member appointments
– Dr Petter Hurlen (Norway) will become IMIA Secretary (2015-18), succeeding Dr Lyn Hanmer (South Africa). Prof. Sabine Koch (Sweden) is appointed for a second term (2015-18) as IMIA Treasurer, Prof. Christoph Lehmann (USA) for a second term (2015-18) as IMIA VP Services, and Prof. Michio Kimura (Japan) for a second term (2015-18) as IMIA VP Membership. Prof. Michio Kimura will also replace Dr Lincoln de Assis Moura Jr as IMIA Liaison Office to ISO.

The IMIA Award of Excellence has been renamed as the IMIA François Grémy Award of Excellence, following a proposal from the French Medical Informatics Association (AIM – Association Française d’Informatique Médicale), our IMIA Member Society in France, and others. The Call for Applications/Nominations for the 2015 Award will be launched in January 2015.

WGSIG_2013The IMIA WG Year of the Award 2013 was presented at the IMIA General Assembly meeting in New Delhi on 31 October. The high quality of the reports and activity of some WG/SIGs means that the committee (chaired by IMIA VP WG/SIGs Prof. Tze Yun Leong) had a lot of work to do to try and judge between the groups. From a shortlist, as the results were so very close, it was not possible to separate the top three, and so the 2013 Award is made jointly to:

  • Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics;
  • Social Media Working Group;
  • Working Group on Technology Assessment and Quality Development.
