Fellow Informatics Professional:
Your assistance is needed in planned dissertation research on Pioneers of Nursing Informatics. I am a doctoral student in Nursing at the University of Connecticut, and I am seeking to prioritize a list of Pioneers in Nursing Informatics for more in-depth qualitative research. If you choose to participate in this Delphi survey, you will be asked to identify the top 5 Pioneers from an established list, or of your independent choosing, who meet the following definition and criteria:
Pioneer: An innovator, trailblazer, or groundbreaker in some aspect of nursing informatics, who was “first” in opening up a new area/aspect of nursing informatics, shaped the thinking/direction or nursing informatics, and demonstrated sustained leadership in nursing informatics.
Prioritization should be based on the degree to which you, the participant, believe the Pioneer embodies the achievements and qualities listed in the definition as well as the weight the participant gives to the amount the Pioneer or their work has influenced their own career in nursing informatics.
If you choose to participate, you may follow the following link to a brief, anonymous survey. Consent is assumed upon completion of the survey.
Thank you for your assistance.
