The TIGER Initiative
Technology Informatics Guiding Educational Reform

TIGER Summit
October 30-November 1, 2006
Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
Bethesda, Maryland

The invitation-only Summit, Evidence and Informatics Transforming Nursing, gathered over 100 leaders from the nation's nursing practice, education, informatics/technology organizations, government agencies, and other key stakeholders around a singular exploratory focus:

Creating a vision for the future of nursing that bridges the quality chasm with information technology (IT), enabling nurses to use informatics in practice and education to provide safer, high-quality patient care.

The goal over the Summit's two days was to create a 10-year vision and 3-year local and global action plan for transforming nursing practice and education to better prepare nurses to practice in an increasingly automated, informatics-rich, and consumer-driven health care environment.

The two-day agenda incorporated keynote
presentations, panel discussions, case study exemplars, large and small group dialog, audience response technology (electronic voting), experiential learning (Gallery Walk), as well as open-space facilitation with real-time graphic recording to maximize output from the 100 participants.
