Identify one of the resources at the CDC Wonder site above and describe how a nurse might use this information in practice.

One resource on the CDC Wonder site is the Heart Disease and Stroke Atlas. This link provides information on the number of heart disease patients as well as stroke patients from any given geographical regions. It details the risk factors, number of deaths, average cost of each hospitalizations that are specific to each regional area. This information is very useful in our practice to help us educate our patients and their families along with educating the general public to help reduce the number of hospitalizations in our particular regions. Providing specialized care to patients using a team approach we are able to have greater reach and influence on the education the patients and their families receive. “Inter professional teams, coordination of care across the illness trajectory, and technological advances will be key components in the new system—arenas in which nurses are familiar and have demonstrated their value.” (ANA, 2015, p.46)

How might nurses utilizing tele-health benefit from these resources?

Tele-health benefit from these resources can provide the caregiver as well as the patient with access to critical information and resources. According to Fronczek, Rouhana, & Kitchin, (2017) as a growing technology tele-health is still changing and can be accessed from several mediums. Apps on smart phones, computer access, and even video conferencing can be used to talk with healthcare providers, assess non emergent patients, and even refer consultations and provide information. Using tele-health may benefit nurses because it allows them to have access to the information they need as well as make referrals as needed. This use of this technology is fairly new and still evolving and I sure the advancements made in the future could advance healthcare by leap years. “Tele-health extends access, and it has the potential of making healthcare services more convenient for patients.”(Kruse, Krowski, Rodriquez, Tran, Vela, & Brooks, (2017)

Address what you find innovative about the link.

I found the CDC WONDER site very helpful. It provides an amazing amount of data and links to sub-topics and information that can be accessed to provide improved quality healthcare. The information can be accessed not only by healthcare providers but also patients. Education is key to prevention and treatment. The more information that we can provide for our patients either via written literature or web based applications the better. This site provides all encompassing diagnosis with treatment options, mortality rates, contributing factors, and average estimated costs of treatment.

Feel free to share some of your nursing innovation ideas!

I have a few nursing innovation ideas. One being cordless telemetry, BP, O2 SAT, and temperature monitoring through a wrist bracelet that is water proof and relatively inexpensive. I have seen some prototypes that are being developed but I would like to see them in the acute care settings. I think this would be beneficial to the nurses as well as the patients.
