Ways of knowing in precision health.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Precision health can provide an avenue to bridge and integrate ways of knowing for research and practice. Nurse scientists have a long-standing interest in using multiple sources of information to address research questions of significance to the profession and discipline of nursing, which can lead to much needed contributions to precision health care. In this paper, nursing scientists discuss emerging research methods including omics, electronic sensors, and geospatial data, and mixed methods that further develop nursing science and contribute to precision health initiatives. The authors provide exemplars of the types of knowledge and ways of knowing that, using these and other advanced data and analytic strategies, may advance precision health within the context of nursing science.
