Dr Kathryn J Hannah Nursing Informatics Lecture Series


The Canadian Nursing Informatics Association is pleased to provide a link to the DR. KATHRYN J. HANNAH LECTURE: THE NURSING INFORMATICS JOURNEY AND THE FUTURE.  Dr. Hannah is Canada’s first nurse informatician. She has made foundational changes to nursing and health care nationally and internationally through education, scholarship, and transforming initiatives like C-HOBIC, and standards development leadership.  Dr. Hannah is the National Executive Lead for C-HOBIC and the Health Informatics Advisor to the Canadian Nurses Association.

This lecture series occurred in jurisdictions across Canada in 2016.  In this lecture Dr. Hannah provides insights into nursing informatics focusing on how we manage and use information to transform nursing practice and to improve health outcomes for people across the health-care system. Dr. Hannah also discusses future implications of technology for nursing.

This lecture series supports the Kathryn J Hannah Scholarship.  This scholarship was launched to support the next generation of nursing informatics leaders. A fund-raising campaign has been launched with the target of $150,000 to generate a self-sustaining scholarship capital fund, to be administered by the Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF).  Annual scholarships in the amount of $5000 will support Canadian nurses in post-graduate studies related to the field of Nursing Informatics.  Please consider donating to support future nursing informaticians. Donations can be made via the CNF website at http://cnf-fiic.ca

Please read the attached letter to find out how you can honour Dr. Kathryn Hannah and demonstrate your support for nursing informatics.

Our thanks to the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta for taping this lecture and sharing it with us.
