Lightbulb the impact of the "informed patient ".......pls help

Hi all,
What do think of the topic

"the impact of the 'informed patient' presents an ethical responsibility on nurses to have skills in using information and communication technologies to support patient care".

I have been struggling with this topic trying to find ideas and references in support of the motion. Please send in your comments and web links. Thank you.

Hi livefree, and welcome to NV. I don't think that we will be any more for you than to try and point you in the right direction for your assignment.

Try searching your library's databases for journal articles:
Sakiko, Fukui (2008) A randomized study assessing the efficacy of communication skill training on patients' psychologic distress and coping: nurses' communication with patients just after being diagnosed with cancer.

It is considered part of being a nurse that you keep up with the latest best practice and knowledge base and in some countries it is part of your registration as a nurse. This could be done in many ways, but probably the easiest way is through the internet with RSS feeds becoming more popular. You might consider looking for articles under 'information literacy' you will then have to link this back into the nursing role.

If I have any other ideas I'll let you know.

Would it go something like:

"Sir, because you haven't opened your bowels for a week, we will continue to shove things up your anus until you do!"
