The Influence of Information Technology Support on Knowledge Management Process of Nurses in Patient Care

Description: The current study investigated the influence of information technology support on knowledge management process of nurses in patient care. Recent concerns about the issue of nursing care delivery have accentuated the need for more improved health services. The importance of knowledge management in improving performance has been strongly highlighted in existing literature. Paucity of studies exist in information technology-based knowledge management of nurses in Nigeria. A quantitative approach comprising of a descriptive survey design was used. Proportionate stratified sampling was used to select registered nurses from the teaching hospitals under study. Only registered nurses on duty were included in the study and sample size consisted of 320 registered nurses. SPSS version 22 and AMOS was used analyze the collected data. The structural models were developed to test the hypothesized relationships. The researchers adhered to the principles of trustworthiness and ethical principles. The results affirmed that information technology support influences knowledge management process in nursing care roles. Based on the findings, information technology is required to promote knowledge management process coupled with appropriate coordination to develop a knowledge-friendly environment for nurses. In view of the emergence of the knowledge-based society and increased demands for quality healthcare by patients, the usage of functional and up-to-date technological infrastructure is necessary to achieve improved nursing care within healthcare organizations. This study demonstrates that information technology support is a crucial factor affecting nursing outcomes. Effective and efficient knowledge management strategies that can improve productivity of healthcare organizations should be adopted for enhancing knowledge management processes of nurses. Increased awareness of the importance of information technology support in nursing care delivery and invest in functional technological infrastructure in order to facilitate and improve knowledge management process in nursing practice.

The Impact of Cyber Addiction on Information Overload and Workplace Performance

Description: Cyber addiction refers to the excessive use of internet and cyber application leading to adverse outcomes such as stress, distractions, reduced motivation levels, and challenges in task orientation. Uncontrolled consumption of the internet leads to information overload that impact productivity and workplace performance (Griffiths, 2010). In such cases, the ubiquitous availability of information can lead to IT-related stress where users derive a reduced sense of satisfaction (Diomidous et al. 2016). People who frequently access the internet can experience various issues, which encompass anxiety, depression, and self-image challenges. Physically, affected individuals experience disrupted sleep patterns, irritability and high levels of fatigue. Social networking sites increase the risk of addiction and online dependency, aspects associated with low levels of productivity (Hoq, 2014). As illustrated in fig 1, the paper hypothesizes that there is a direct relationship between information overload and workplace performance and job satisfaction. The assumption is that cyber addiction worsens the problem of information overload, which in return, impacts information behavior and use and workplace/job performance (Riaz & Qureshi, 2019). The study addresses the following research questions: What is the impact of cyber addiction on workplace performance? What are the relationships between cyber addiction, information workload and information behavior and use? The findings indicate cyber addiction adversely affects job performance and significantly correlates with the concept of information overload and information behavior and use. Prominent issues among a majority of users include poor prioritization and planning, as employees often opt for non-essential functions at the expense of critical ones.

Information Representation and Knowledge Organization in Cultural Heritage Organizations in Arab Gulf Counties: A case study of Alqabas Archive

Description: The goal of this study is to explore how information is currently organized in digital cultural heritage collections in Arabian Gulf countries. it focused on Alqabas – a Kuwaiti institution with a strong reputation of early adopter of digital archiving and developer of major digital collections in Arab Gulf counties, accumulated experience in knowledge management. The mixed-methods study combined semi-structured interview of the Alqabas archive manager and in-depth content analysis of a sample of metadata records that represent items in Alqabas digital collections for accuracy, completeness, consistency, use of knowledge organization systems. The study reveals high metadata quality overall but lack of consistency for many metadata fields, explained in part by the absence of metadata creation guidelines and professional training for metadata creators. This indicates potential barriers to metadata interoperability in an aggregated environment for future projects similar to DPLA or Europeana.

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise

Description: Disinformation and misinformation are pervasive in unregulated social-media environments, which are used habitually for obtaining news. Fenn et al in 2019 stated that “Given that people tend to share interesting information to maintain social relationships or to manage their impressions, information that receives more likes may subsequently be shared more often” (Fenn, Ramsay, Kantner, Pezdek, & Abed, 2019, p.133) Recent studies also revealed that misinformation from politicians and celebrities has increased in recent years which lead to more engagement on Twitter (Brennen, et al. 2020 ). There has been a lot of misinformation pertaining to COVID-19 masks on Twitter. Due to the misinformation, many people might not believe in the effectiveness of masks. Even though studies have shown the effectiveness of wearing masks in different countries (Lyu and Wehby, 2020). Not wearing masks affects people's health and indirectly increases the spread of COVID-19. Studies of social noise and misinformation cases on social media are needed, specifically focusing on how social noise influences and contributes to the spread of misleading and possibly harmful messages.

Speaker Independent, Continuous Speech Recognizer for Kafi Noonoo, Afro-Asiatic Language in Ethiopia

Description: This paper will report on a research to develop Speaker Independent, Continuous Speech Recognizer for Kafi Noonoo (Afro-Asiatic language that belongs to North Omotic sub family in Ethiopia) using Hidden Markov Modeling technique. The portable and open source toolkit called Hidden Markov Model (HMM) Toolkit is used to perform the experiment. The development of HMM based Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) requires both text and speech corpus for training and testing the HMM. In order to have a model that incorporates different features of the language, we included the different dialects of Kafi Noonoo in the corpus and then prepared the training and test corpus from the scratch, and after preprocessing we have sampled and performed feature extraction using Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) feature extraction technique.
