Statement Type Regulatory Comment
AMIA submitted comments recently to the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) in response to their request for public comments on the latest draft of the Institute's strategic plan. The association's comments were informed by AMIA's Nursing Informatics Working Group (NIWG), which promotes the advancement of nursing informatics within the larger interdisciplinary context of health informatics. Among other things, AMIA is pleased to see that NINR has recognized the increasingly important role that technology and informatics tools are playing in nursing research, education, and practice by including goals related to these areas at multiple points in the plan.
AMIA's full comments are available here below, while NINR's Draft Strategic Plan is available here.
