•Review the information in Figure 6-2 in Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge.(WILL UPLOAD)
•Develop a clinical question related to your area of practice that you would like to explore.
•Consider what you currently know about this topic. What additional information would you need to answer the question?
•Using the continuum of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom, determine how you would go about researching your question.
◦Explore the available databases. Identify which of these databases you would use to find the information or data you need.
◦Once you have identified useful databases, how would you go about finding the most relevant articles and information?
◦Consider how you would extract the relevant information from the articles.
◦How would you take the information and organize it in a way that was useful? How could you take the step from simply having useful knowledge to gaining wisdom?
Write a 3- to 4-page paper that addresses the following:
•Summarize the question you developed, and then relate how you would work through the four steps of the data, information, knowledge, wisdom continuum. Be specific.
◦Identify the databases and search words you would use.
◦Relate how you would take the information gleaned and turn it into useable knowledge.
•Can informatics be used to gain wisdom? Describe how you would progress from simply having useful knowledge to the wisdom to make decisions about the information you have found during your database search.
