In this Discussion, you will consider a scenario that would benefit from access to data and how such access could facilitate both problem-solving and knowledge formation.
Reflect on the concepts of informatics and knowledge work as presented in the Resources.
Consider a hypothetical scenario based on your own healthcare practice or organization that would require or benefit from the access/collection and application of data.
Your scenario may involve a patient, staff, or management problem or gap.
Post a descriiption of the focus of your scenario.
Describe the data that could be used and how the data might be collected and accessed.
What knowledge might be derived from that data?
How would a nurse leader use clinical reasoning and judgment in the formation of knowledge from this experience?
