How do you get nursing staff involved? Jo Dickson Lead Nurse – Informatics / CNIO Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust E-prescribing Masterclass webex
Clinical leadership is key If you always do what you always did… …....you’ll always get what you always got Florence Nightingale The founder of modern nursing was a pioneer in the visual presentation of information and statistics to highlight seasonal sources of patient mortality in military hospitals.
Is there a role for nurses? e-Prescribing systems help reduce the risk of medication errors to: o Produce more legible prescriptions o Alert for contra-indications, allergies and drug interactions o Guide inexperienced prescribers o Support timely and complete administration (reduce errors or omissions) o Access to further information o Clear guidance on what to do next o Improved formulary guidance and adherence o No more rewriting drug charts o Order sets o Discharge prescriptions prepared in advance e-prescribing for NHS hospitals 27th October 2014

Real life technology “Can I have an ipad?” – Nurses need to embrace new technologies and try them out – touch and feel – But remember everyone’s different!
Think of eMedicines -Think of the team… Clinical leadership is key but one person (or clinical group) cannot do it on their own Electronic prescribing and medicines administration is an important and powerful innovation for the whole care team All health care professionals must be involved in planning and implementation and remain involved as the system is used
