CS1-10 - Where Do We Go Next? Using Telehealth Technologies in Nursing

Monday, April 30
4:05 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: Education Zone, Booth 2416, Zone 1

As noted in Taylor and Coates (2015) implementing telehealth solutions for nurses can be challenging.
Overall, in practice, the majority of solutions are geared to nurses practicing in the outpatient setting.
In the May 2014 survey (AAACN, 2014), nurses stated overwhelmingly that training and education "would
best support telehealth practice" in their respective organizations. In addition, according to Hicks and Cimarolli (2016),
nursing interventions via telehealth often provide opportunities for improving patient outcomes and care transitions.

In our presentation, we will describe four ways nurses can understand their role in implementing telehealth/connected care
solutions in a variety of settings. Next, we will define options available to nurses. Finally, we will provide two examples of
ways to implement successful nurse-led projects.
