At a Glance (for all tracks)

SINI offers cutting-edge information in nursing informatics for participants at all levels. This year, we will offer two tracks open to all participants and two expert-level think tanks.

Tracks A and B are open to participants with any level of expertise in nursing informatics, from novice to expert. Participants are encouraged to select a track and remain in it for an intensive, in-depth educational experience.

Experts in nursing informatics (those with at least two years' experience in informatics plus a deep knowledge of relevant concepts and relationships) are invited to participate in one of two think-tank experiences that will run during the same times as the concurrent tracks listed above. Think tanks will be facilitated by recognized leaders in the topic area. Think tank participants should achieve a deeper understanding of the issues, be able to contribute to a road map to meet persistent challenges, and discover more sophisticated techniques to apply in the work place. Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to a publication based on the work of the think tank. All participants will be acknowledged in any publications.

Participants should plan to spend all of the concurrent session time in the selected think tank.
