Title Using technology to complement nursing practice: an RCN guide for health care practitioners

The RCN has produced this guidance to chart the complexities of using eHealth technology and draw together some of the key principles and advice for health care practitioners investigating an eHealth approach for their current clinical practice. Health care leaders and managers will also find it a useful checklist for considering eHealth when redesigning a service or establishing a new service to provide advice and support to patients, their families and carers. The guidance provides an overview, covering the broad principles and key issues to consider for safe and effective eHealth services. It complements separate, short guides that include checklists and advice for:

  • Using telephone advice for patients with long term conditions (RCN publication code 004 229)
  • Using text messaging services (RCN publication code 004 230)
  • Developing and using websites (RCN publication code 004 231)
  • Using telehealth to monitor patients remotely (RCN publication code 004 232)
