Health informatics survey

Are you involved in health informatics teaching or research?
Can you contribute your views to a new survey?

The aim of the survey is to validate the rationale and methods of a literature review of theory in health informatics. The survey is directed primarily at the UK academic community in health informatics, though other health informatics practitioners are also welcome to participate.

The survey has 25 questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Three participants will be randomly selected to win a 250 MB USB stick.

The survey is available online here and will remain open until mid September 2009.

If you have any queries about the survey please contact

Developing a culture of knowledge sharing across the NHS that stimulates the application of Heath Informatics research and best practice

Clinicians, from the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, and Academics in the field of Health Informatics, from the University of the West of England, have joined together to evaluate knowledge sharing across the NHS. We aim to look at knowledge sharing both within the NHS and between the NHS and external organisations. We have developed an on-line survey which is aimed not only at NHS clinicians and health informatics professionals but also at representatives from external organisations which interact with the NHS.

Please take part in this on-line survey which can be found at:

Using this survey we hope to identify and explore examples of good practice, in terms of knowledge sharing, across the NHS. We also hope to document and understand the obstacles to knowledge sharing which currently exist.

Following analysis of the data, we aim to produce recommendations regarding how Heath Informatics research and best practice can help foster and support a culture of knowledge sharing across the NHS.

Survey of the effects of technology on nursing practice

A colleague is in the process of validating a survey designed to measure the impact of health information technology on the role of nurses and on interdisciplinary communication. They hope that the survey will help us better understand the benefits and drawbacks of new health-related technology on the communication and work of nurses in hospitals. This survey has already been validated in the United States.

If you are a hospital-based nurse in England, they would be grateful if you could spare the time to help us validate the survey by visiting {URL}:
