Assignment: Application: Using the Data/Information/Knowledge/Wisdom Continuum
Have you ever gone online to search for a journal article on a specific topic? It is amazing to see the large number of journals that are available in the health care field. When you view the library in its entirety you are viewing untapped data. Until you actually research for your particular topic there is little structure. Once you have narrowed it down you have information and once you apply the information you have knowledge. Eventually after thoughtful research and diligent practice you reach the level of wisdomknowledge applied in meaningful ways.
