  25. 25. If you had an iPad, how would you use it to improve patient care? • It would allow me to look things up while in a patient’s room… It would also allow me to pull up images for patients to view… • I think using an iPad in the field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery would be helpful in using some of the imaging software to help inform patients during pre-operative and post-operative evaluation. • show neuro patients images of the brain • demonstrate videos to patients
  26. 26. If you had an iPad, how would you use it to improve patient care? • quicker access to help with diagnosis, medical orders, and literature searches • dosage • film review • diagnostic assessment criteria • would be able to conduct search in the room with patient instead of needing to look up data later on and then contact patient with it
