Abstract

Amaç: Bilişim teknolojilerine yönelik hemşirelik araştırmalarının küresel eğilimini değerlendirmek ve bu alandaki bilgi gelişiminin kavramsal alanlarını analiz etmektir.

Yöntemler: Konu ile ilgili araştırmaların bilgi alanlarının nicel değerlendirilmesi ve görselleştirmeleri için R yazılımı ve VoSviewer kullanıldı. 1970 yılından itibaren günümüze kadar olan literatür; “bilişim” veya “bilgi teknolojisi” ve “hemşirelik” veya “uzaktan hemşirelik” veya “tele sağlık hemşireliği” veya “telefon hemşireliği” veya “e-sağlık hemşireliği” veya “hemşirelikte tele sağlık” veya “hemşirelik bilişimi” anahtar kelimeleri ile taranmıştır. Araştırmalar istatistiksel ve metin madenciliği analiz yöntemleriyle değerlendirildi.

Bulgular: 1989 ile 2023 yılları arasında yayınlanan 5184 doküman analiz edildi. Yıllık büyüme yüzdesi 4,31, Uluslararası ortak yazarlık yüzdesi 11,63’tür. Anahtar kelime artı sayısı 2739, yazara ait anahtar kelime sayısı ise 6365’tir. Anahtar kelime analizine ve bilgi teknolojilerinin hemşirelik bakımına etkisine odaklanan anahtar ve referans makaleler ortaya çıkmıştır. E-sağlık, tele-sağlık, teletıp ve diğer bilgi sistemleri ile tele-hemşirelik, hemşirelik bilişim araştırmaları için önemli konular olmuştur. İki kavramsal küme oluşmuştur. İlk küme, hemşirelik dokümantasyonu, mobil sağlık, e-sağlık, uzun süreli bakım, hemşirelik eğitimi, eğitim teknolojisi, kanıta dayalı uygulama, kalite geliştirmeyi içermektedir. Diğer küme ise, eğitim merkezinde bilişim yeterliliği, simülasyon ve müfredatı içermektedir. Konuyla ilgili araştırmaların birçok gelişmekte olan veya az gelişmiş ülkede hala ele alınmadığını tespit etti.

Sonuç: Hemşirelik bilişim araştırmaları, e-sağlık ve tele-sağlık gibi konularda geniş bir yelpazeyi kapsarken, bu araştırmaların coğrafi dağılımının dünya genelinde eşitsiz olduğu ve özellikle gelişmekte olan veya az gelişmiş ülkelerde daha az ele alındığı görülmektedir

A Bibliometric Analysis of the Global Trend of Nursing Research on Information Technologies from Past to Present

Year 2023, Volume: 26 Issue: 4, 260 - 270, 29.12.2023

Abstract

Objective: The aim was to evaluate the global trend of nursing research on information technologies and to analyze conceptual areas of knowledge development in this field.

Methods: R software and VoSviewer were used for the quantitative evaluation and visualization of the knowledge areas of studies on the subject. The literature from 1970 to the present day has been searched with the keywords “informatics” or “information technology” and “nursing” or “telenursing” or “telehealth nursing” or “telephone nursing” or “e-health nursing” or “tele-health in nursing” or “nursing informatics. Studies were evaluated by statistical and text mining analysis methods.

Results: A total of 5184 documents published between 1989 and 2023 were analyzed. Annual growth percentage is 4.31, and the international co-authorships percentage is 11.63. Number of keywords plus is 2739, and number of author’s keywords is 6365. It revealed that key and reference articles focused on analysis of keywords and the impact of information technologies on nursing care. Telenursing with e-health, telehealth, telemedicine, and other information systems have been important topics for nursing informatics research. Two conceptual clusters are formed. First cluster includes nursing documentation, mobile health, e-health, long-term care, nursing education, educational technology, evidence-based practice, and quality improvement. The other cluster includes informatics competence, simulation, and curriculum in the training center. It is found that research on the subject is still not addressed in many developing or underdeveloped countries.

Conclusion: Nursing informatics research covers a wide spectrum in topics such as e-health and telehealth, while it is observed that the geographical distribution of these studies is uneven globally, with particularly less focus in developing or less developed countries.
