The Online Consensus on nurse prescribing is a model that allows determine, in a health organization, which is the current expectation that diverse health professionals have in relation to the forthcoming regulation of nurse prescribing. The tool has been applied to a group of primary care centers in the southern metropolitan region of Barcelona. Nurses agree but among physicians there isn’t a lot of consensus. The Health Consensus model has been applied in two successive waves with 375 participants. + [Artículo]
One of the interesting things about future is that nobody knows exactly how it is going to be, but if you listen to the right people the noise looks like having some sense. This is exactly the feeling with this article from Fast Company.
Bill Buxton (Microsoft Research) proposes a music analogy for the evolution of design. Design has typically been preoccupied with creating new instruments, but besides how wonderful any one of those instruments might be, the true potential is only realized when they play well together—essentially as one. It is the creativity and skill of the conductor that is essential to that happening.The next “big thing” is not a thing. It is a change in the relationship amongst the things. Without the Conductor’s input, we are on a fast path to hitting the complexity barrier, since the cumulative complexity of a bunch of simple things—regardless of how delightful, simple and desirable they may be—will soon exceed the ability of humans to cope. It is the Conductor who carries the responsibility for the design of those relationships and ensuring that their collective value significantly exceeds the sum of their individual values, and their cumulative complexity is significantly less than the sum of their individual complexities.

The latest advances in neuroscience and physics reveal a path that, although in the field of research, is full of surprises: telepathy, mental control, avatars, telekinesis, recording of memories and dreams, projecting thoughts and emotions, anong others. But what is interesting is not so much where we will be, but what will be discovered along the way. +

Learning to put useful and ordered questions about the future can help to anticipate the use of technology and the market trends. Innovation requires picturing reasonable scenarios to guess eventual market acceptance of new products and services.

Working with technology is like living between present and future. Different versions of the technology that will get the success, are available some time before its definite social acceptance and extension. Guessing when and how which particular technology will win the market, that’s the goal.

There is no doubt that internet is one of the most complex and influent artefacts that human inventive has given. Internet is a “pseudo living system” that will extend capillary on the whole earth activity. It`s like a new planet skin that may give a new dimension to civilization. Future internet is transcendent for the economy and for the evolution of society and people. As Lévy say, we are in a neoPalaeolithic of knowledge, which has just discovered a new silex. Future Internet Drivers is part of a research project from i2Cat , leaded by professors Miquel Ramirez (p) and JMª Monguet (p) that aims at modelling a framework for the understanding of the evolution of internet at the regional level. +
