Abstract

Chapter 14 reports on nursing informatics in relation to change management. It introduces the proceeding chapters which are presented as case studies on the various perspectives and differing approaches from authors working in the sphere of nursing informatics. The cross cutting theme evident in the case studies is that health care systems and nursing informatics are in various stages of transition. Authors report within the case studies how ICT is shaping nursing while highlighting the importance of implementing in parallel effective change management strategies to maximize effectiveness. Chapter 14 offers a summary overview of change management principles and how they can be applied in practice. It also includes a summary report on the ACENDIO Conference on eHealth and Nursing Innovations for the Future.
