Nurses and information technology
Authors: Hegney, D., Buikstra, E., Eley, R., Fallon, A., Gilmore, V., Soar, J.
This study sought responses from nurses across Australia about their use of information technology. Nurses are frustrated by the limitations of access to technology; software that is not always fit for purpose and the lack of opportunities for training.
The level of use of information technology and information management systems is generally low and confidence in use is low even among nurses who are users.
The study however has clearly identified that nurses recognise benefits to adoping more information technology in the workplace. The Nurses and Information Technology report is available for download.
