Competencies, Information Literacy, and Information Management”(Technology Informatics Guiding Educational Reform [TIGER], 2009, p. 1). I feel very proficient with the first phase of the initiative and use technology without difficulty. For instance,basic computer knowledge would be the ability to navigate the patient’s chart and enter vital signs or view physician’s orders; sendingan email to a co-worker and using the Stratus interpreter services on an I-pad. Computerorientation classes are required and provided for staff, as well as learning to navigate the Meditech EMR system. InformationLiteracyincorporates critical thinking and evidence-based practice (TIGER, 2009, p.5). According to the TIGER Initiative, retrieving the correct information requires critical thinking and appropriate assessment skills based on the resources available such as colleagues, policies, and literature. Evaluating the e-information is also related to the validity and reliability of the datasource. This is influenced by what is actually entered into the databases used. Being proactive in the ability to interpret diagnostic testing and laboratory results and understand how it affects the care of the patient allows me and other nurses to identify and access applicable information and evaluate it.The ability to locate policies, organize and use the information effectively, as well as obtain evidence-based practice literature would alsobe included in the second phase of the initiative (TIGER, 2009).
