Involve nurses in IT input

Involve nurses in IT input - Comment - Times Online

A letter to the Times (27th June) by Richard Hayward - Chair, British Computer Society Health Informatics (Nursing) Specialist Group and Professor Dame June Clark -Chair, RCN Information in Nursing Forum, about the lack of involvement of the nursing (including midwifery and health visiting) community in the design and preparation for the programme, has been picked up by EHealth Insider.

The EHI story Lack of NPfIT involvement concerns nurses links this with a recent editorial in Nursing Times, which protested at the news that community nurses are well down the schedule to receive help from the Primis Plus, the service funded by Connecting for Health to help primary care organisations improve patient care through the effective use of their clinical computer systems.

Comments on the issues raised can be made on the EHI page.
