The rapid growth in the use of mobile technology in Australia has outpaced its governance, especially in healthcare settings. Whilst some Australian professional bodies and organisations have developed standards and guidelines to direct appropriate use of social media and mobile technology, clear governance arrangements regarding when, where and how to use mobile technology at point of care in nursing are currently lacking. This paper analyses how the use of mobile technology by nurses at point ...

A transition from paper to e-documentation together with the electronic patient record should be based on thorough knowledge of the current state of documentation and its usages. The main objective of this paper was to analyse which documents and work methods of documenting processes within nursing are being used within different enviro...

Contemporary healthcare delivery is at an intersection. On one hand, policymakers and researchers strongly advocate self-care management programs, patient empowerment, and promotion of community-based services. Conversely, hospital centrism and hyper-specialization continue to prevail. Reporting in 2008, the World Health Organisation (WHO) argued the case that the medical model invariably fails to deliver affordable, accessible, and equitable health for citizens. 1 This failure can be linked wit...

Background: Nursing education can maintain its dynamic quality when it moves toward innovation and modern methods of teaching and learning. Therefore, teachers are required to employ up to date methods in their teaching plans. This study evaluated the effects of e-learning, lectures, and role playing on nursing students’ learning, retention, and satisfaction. Methods: Sixty nursing students were selected as an experiment and control groups during two consecutive semesters. The educational conten...

Background Telehealth has emerged as an important tool for healthcare providers. Telehealth concepts are not currently taught in many nursing courses. Purpose Introduce telehealth concepts to pre-licensure nursing students via a learning module and to test its effectiveness using pre and post-tests. Method A two-tailed t test used to analyze the difference between the pre and post-test scores supported the research question: “Is the use of a new telehealth learning module effective in teaching p...

In the last decade, the scope of practice for nurses in informatics roles has been evolving and shifting in response to the needs of health care organizations. While the informatician’s practice has been seldom consistently defined or circumscribed in terms of role responsibilities and scope, they have been significant contributors to the evolution and dissemination of information and communication technology (ICT) across the globe. Further the advent of formalized education in nursing and healt...

Social justice is a fundamental value of the nursing profession, challenging educators to instill this professional value when caring for the poor. This rando- mized controlled trial examined whether an interactive virtual poverty simulation created in Second Life ® would improve nursing students' empathy with and attributions for people living in poverty, compared to a self-study module. We created a multi-user virtual environment populated with families and individual avatars that represented ...

Nursing informatics is a new nursing specialty in Nigeria; even though it was approved by the American Nurses Association in 1992 as a recognized specialty and has since been growing. The building blocks of this specialty are nursing, information and computer sciences. These three combined provide the knowledge base of nursing informatics. Expanded roles and technology are being incorporated into the domain of nursing informatics. The effects of these roles are visible across all sectors of nurs...
