Nursing Standard eHealth Award 2013

The winners of the Nursing Standard Nurse of the Year Awards were announced, and the winner of the inaugural eHealth award was Adrienne Willcox, Nurse Director of Health Team Ltd, Birmingham, who created an online package to help patients going abroad to choose the most appropriate malaria prophylaxis.

eHealth Case Studies

The RCN is always keen to share examples of good practice and we asked members to let us know how they are using technology and electronic systems to record and share information about patient care, provide patient support or remote monitoring. Please visit our case studies page for more information.

Conference collaborations

As nurses, midwives or healthcare assistants you form the largest part of the health workforce. In order to make sure that any IT or other eHealth implementation in your workplace is fit for purpose it is important that your voice is heard by the IT community, including IT supplier companies, NHS IT managers and commissioning groups.

It is also important that nursing staff can share and celebrate the good work they are already part of, and in many cases are leading new innovations in. For those reasons, the RCN has teamed up with other organisations to help break down barriers between nursing and IT.
