This report provides an insight into the current status of mobile technologies for district nursing teams.
It was informed by interviews with district nurses and community nursing managers from seven NHS boards and with academics. Those interviewed recognised the benefits of mobile technologies for district nursing teams in terms of efficiency, improved quality of care, and a safer service.
Ahead of the Scottish Government’s new Digital Health and Social Care Strategy, the report makes recommendations for what needs to happen to make mobile technologies a reality for district nursing teams on the ground.
