Abstract

This paper presents a comparative case study to assess the feasibility of training nurses to use electronic clinical information systems in an intensive care environment. It describes three critical care units, each at a different stage of implementing a clinical system.

The study has found that it is possible to train nurses to use clinical systems on-the-job. However it is difficult and not desired by nurses; nurses prefer to work with mock cases away from the unit. Furthermore, in order to motivate nurses to learn on-the-job, the perceived usefulness of the system is an important factor and is a prerequisite to success.
