Assisted Electronic Communication in Nursing

This Assisted Electronic Communication research project explored the potential of information technologies to change communication behaviours and facilitate improvements in health care practice and service delivery. A central concern of this work has been the impact of new technology on communication processes and structures within the nursing professions. To explore this issue, we created, administered and evaluated a core document discussion space system supported by the deployment of a multimedia webcasting system. The technology enabled health care professionals within an acute NHS Trust to contribute to threaded, asynchronous discussions and themed information.
