Informatics Nurse, Taofiki Gafar-Schaner

Before speaking with Taofiki Gafar-Schaner, I had very little knowledge of Informatics Nursing. He was terrific at giving us a window into this interesting nursing specialty. Taofiki’s knowledge of the role is apparent and he taught us much: from how electronic health records are built to the vulnerability of these records to cyber attacks, from what kind of schedule to expect, to the education required. I think the most important lesson he taught us is just, how to be a good human. As a nurse informaticist, he is a nurse advocate of the highest level, improving nursing workflows and even co-inventing a product that benefits nurses in the care of their patients and there’s no better human than that, one that helps nurses, help patients. In the five-minute snippet, we learned he feels teachers are the most undervalued profession, and he would be right. For Taofiki's book recs, visit:
