Introduction

This assessment will give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of how technology can enhance quality and safety standards in nursing. You will prepare an annotated bibliography on technology in nursing. A well-prepared annotated bibliography is a comprehensive commentary on the content of scholarly publications and other sources of evidence about a selected nursing-related technology. A bibliography of this type provides a vehicle for workplace discussion to address gaps in nursing practice and to improve patient care outcomes. As nurses become more accountable in their practice, they are being called upon to expand their role of caregiver and advocate to include fostering research and scholarship to advance nursing practice. An annotated bibliography stimulates innovative thinking to find solutions and approaches to effectively and efficiently address these issues.

Professional Context

Rapid changes in information technology go hand-in-hand with progress in quality health care delivery, nursing practice, and interdisciplinary team collaboration. Technology is essential to the advancement of the nursing profession, maintaining quality care outcomes, patient safety, and research.

Preparation

Before you begin to develop the assessment, you are encouraged to complete the Annotated Bibliography Formative Assessment. Completing this activity will help you succeed with the assessment and counts towards course engagement.

To successfully complete this assessment, perform the following preparatory activities:

Review the technologies presented in the resource and select one of the options to use as the focus for this assessment.

Direct patient care technologies require an interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. Nurses use direct patient care technologies every day when delivering care to patients. Electronic thermometers or pulse oximeters are examples of direct patient care technologies.

Indirect patient care technologies, on the other hand, are those employed on behalf of the patient. They do not require interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. A handheld device for patient documentation is an example of an indirect patient care technology.

Conduct a library search using the various electronic databases available through the Capella University Library.

Consult the  for help in identifying scholarly and/or authoritative sources.

Access the NHS Learner Success Lab, linked in the courseroom navigation menu, for additional resources.

  • Scan the search results related to your chosen technology.

Select four peer-reviewed publications focused on your selected topic that are the most interesting to you.

Evaluate the impact of patient care technologies on desired outcomes.

Analyze current evidence on the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team.

Integrate current evidence about the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team into a recommendation.

Notes

Publications may be research studies or review articles from a professional source. Newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not considered professional sources.

Your selections need to be current—within the last five years.

Instructions

First, review the technologies presented in the resource and select one of the options to use as the focus for this assessment.

Next prepare a 4–6 page paper in which you introduce your selected technology and describe at least four peer-reviewed publications that promote the use of your selected technology to enhance quality and safety standards in nursing. You will conclude your paper by summarizing why you recommend a particular technology by underscoring the evidence-based resources you presented. Be sure that your paper includes all of the following elements:

Introduction to the Selected Technology Topic

  • What is your rationale for selecting this particular technology topic? What is interesting about it?

What research process did you employ?

  • Which databases did you use?

Which search terms did you use?

  • Note: In this section of your bibliography, you may use first-person since you are asked to describe your rationale for selecting the topic and the research strategies you employed. Use third person in the rest of the bibliography, however.

Annotation Elements

  • For each resource, include the full reference followed by the annotation.

Explain the focus of the research or review article you chose.

  • Provide a summary overview of the publication.
  • According to this source, what is the impact of this technology on patient safety and quality of care?
  • According to this source, what is the relevance of this technology to nursing practice and the work of the interdisciplinary health care team?

Why did you select this publication to write about out of the many possible options? In other words, make the case as to why this resource is important for health care practitioners to read.

  • Summary of Recommendation

How would you tie together the key learnings from each of the four publications you examined?

  • What organizational factors influence the selection of a technology in a health care setting? Consider such factors as organizational policies, resources, culture/social norms, commitment, training programs, and/or employee empowerment.
  • How would you justify the implementation and use of the technology in a health care setting? This is the section where you will justify (prove) that the implementation of the
    patient care technology is appropriate or not. The evidence should be cited from the literature that was noted in the annotated bibliography.
Consider the impact of the technology on the health care organization, patientcare/satisfaction, and interdisciplinary team productivity, satisfaction, and retention.

Write an annotated bibliography where you identify peer-reviewed publications that promote the use of a selected technology to enhance quality and safety standards in nursing.
