    A week in the life of an Informatics Lead Nurse: Friday

    Last day of the week and my favourite one as it is a "clinical Friday" for me. It is important in my role to be visible and easily accessible to staff in the clinical areas. I do this to keep up to date with their process, understand the workflow and listen to subject matter experts and end-users on where we can improve and optimise, making sure that we have the ward to board (and vice versa) lines of communication open.

    Blog 2: My journey as a Topol Digital Fellow

    I am delighted that my project on using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to develop a predictive algorithm is gathering pace and momentum. It illustrates the importance of support and encouragement from the Trust, where I am fortunate to get both from the Chief Information Officer and the Chief Executive.

    Digital literacy and ease of use of digital systems survey

    Whilst working on the implementation and creation of a diverse range of digital projects throughout the years, as well as from colleague feedback, I have found that one of the most common and impactful barriers universal to them all is digital literacy. So, when generating my Topol Digital Fellowship proposal on the digital transformation of an aseptic unit, I wanted to include it as a key priority, to make sure everyone could enjoy the benefits, and that no one felt left behind.
