1 NURSING SHORTAGE Technology for nursing excellence

2 In todays challenging health care environment, all health care providers and health care plans are turning to technology to solve problems and to achieve better patient outcomes.

3 Technology is an important component of the health care field because doctors, nurses and medical specialists use technology in the diagnosis and treatment of health problems. Graduates of medical and nursing programs must be knowledgeable and comfortable using this technology.

4 Health care organizations adopt technology to improve quality and patient safety, increase efficiency, decrease time-consuming and redundant paperwork, and enhance communication. Technologies used by nurses offer the means for preventing errors and adverse events (e.g., medication errors, miscommunications, delays in treatment, and adverse eventssuch as nosocomial infections, pressure ulcers, falls, and complications of immobility). Benefits of technology

5 Organizational factors Societal factors Environmental factors Factors affecting the use of technology

6 policies, procedures management commitment employee empowerment training programs culture, social norms Organizational factors

7 Societal factors support within the nursing team acceptance of computers in nursing level of motivation climate of trust

8 Building Equipments and resources Physical environment

13 Supply From year 1980 to present Technological advancements include: Wireless devices: Hand-held Computers, Smart phones. Real-time equipment and supplies location systems. Workflow management systems such as automated census boards. Wireless patient monitoring systems for prevention of falls. Electronic medication administration with bar coding. Electronic clinical documentation with clinical decision support capability.

14 Delivery robots for interdepartmental services, such as meal delivery, hospital lab deliveries, laundry services are most news inventions.

15 Also safer medication administration and patient safety monitoring devices, decision- making tools and telenursing.

16 telephone-basedcomputing Most common in home health care nursing, allows a nurse to phone in information from the client's home or to upload all her documentation of the day's visits to the agency's computer. Telenursing

17 videoconference technologies and interactive television are the most widely used mode of telenursing. A surgeon performing surgery in one state consults with a surgeon in another state via a live. interactive television used to follow up patients, check wound healing, and determine how accurately patients are administering medications-all in real time.

18 American Association of Colleges of Nursing (2002) recommended incorporation of technology into nursing education. Careful use of technology in education enhance the profession's ability to educate nurses for practice, prepare future nurse educators, and advance nursing science in an era when the number of qualified nurses, faculty and nurse researchers is well below national need.

20 Human patient simulators are used as an aid in simulating real-life medical situations that a future nurse will be called on to help with. These simulators can be programmed to change blood pressure, breathing rate, symptoms, temperature and other body functions in response to the care providing. Instructors can allow nursing students to make errors that cause the patient simulator to go into cardiac arrest or die.

21 Distance learning is a set of learning strategies to meet the learning needs of students separate from the traditional classroom setting and sometimes from the traditional roles of faculty. Distance education requires that teachers and learners are separate from each othe r.

22 These technologies encompass a variety of content-delivery methods, including audio conference by telephone, audiocassette tape, videotaped instruction, electronic mail ( ), faxing, fixed computer media (CD-ROM and floppy disk), Internet list-serves, room-based video conference (interactive television), desktop video conference, and World Wide Web.

24 Advantages of distance learning Accessibility: online classes address physical accessibility issues that some people with limited mobility encounter when taking traditional classes. You don't have to worry about gaining access to a classroom or sitting on uncomfortable desks. Instead, you can use your comfortable furniture in your home while enjoying free movement and a chance to further your education.

26 But

27 Budgets for nursing education are often limited making it difficult for nursing programs to grow and expand without funding from grants, private donors or foundations. Nurse researchers, educators, clinicians, and administrators need to work together to actively deal with the issues of advanced technology.
