CNIA Award for Diversifying & Strengthening Nursing Informatics

La traduction française suit.

Diversifying & Strengthening Nursing Informatics Award

At CNIA, we recognize that there is a persistent homogeneity in nursing leadership and informatics, with members frequently belonging to historically dominant and privileged groups that do not reflect the diversity of the nursing profession nor of the Canadian population.

To help address this issue, we’re thrilled to launch a new award for diversifying and strengthening nursing informatics in Canada. Two $1000 awards and free virtual conference registration will be made available.

Applicants (nurses or nursing students) will be asked to share how historically under-represented perspectives in nursing informatics, including their own, are necessary to improve digital health for all (i.e., the use of data and digital technologies in healthcare - including social media and apps).

CNIA membership is not required to apply, but we encourage all applicants to join. Remember – student membership is free! The deadline to apply is now Friday April 14th, 2023, 5pm EST.

For further instructions and the link to the Google submission form, please download this pdf.


Diversifier et renforcer l’informatique infirmière prix

Au CNIA, nous reconnaissons qu’il existe une homogénéité persistante dans le direction infirmier et l’informatique, les membres appartenant souvent à des groupes historiquement dominants et privilégiés qui ne reflètent pas la diversité de la profession infirmière ni de la population canadienne.

Pour aider à résoudre ce problème, nous sommes heureux de lancer un nouveau prix pour la diversification et le renforcement de l’informatique infirmière au Canada. Deux prix de 1000 $ et l’inscription gratuite au conférence virtuelle seront offerts.

Les candidats (infirmières ou étudiantes en soins infirmiers) seront invités à expliquer comment les perspectives historiquement sous-représentées en informatique des soins infirmiers, y compris les leurs, sont nécessaires pour améliorer la santé numérique pour tous (donc l’utilisation des données et des technologies numériques dans les soins de santé - y compris les médias sociaux et les applications).

L’adhésion à l’ACII n’est pas obligatoire, mais nous encourageons tous les candidats à s’inscrire. N’oubliez pas que l’adhésion des étudiants est gratuite! La date limite pour présenter une demande est maintenant le 14 avril, 2023, 1700 EST.
