The Four-Step Continuum and Informatics Sean Leonard Walden University Nursing 6051 Transforming Nursing and Healthcare August 25, 2015 Wisdom with Informatics Nursing informatics plays an important role in managing healthcare for patients with degenerative disorders of the central nervous system. Managing complex medical issues for patients with Parkinson’s disease involves applying previous knowledge or wisdom in treatment (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2012).

An audit showing the effectiveness of good nutrition on wound healing would also be beneficial. Rationale During placement on a cardiovascular surgery ward I noted that there were several delayed discharges and readmissions due to poor wound healing. This clearly has implication for the patient’s own recovery and costs to the NHS.
