The networked nurse: Using virtual communication systems for practice development

927 views

Published on

This is the presentation I gave at the Virtual Nurse Practice Development Conference on the 13th May 2015.

Many factors impact on the nurse's ability to develop practice. Lack of access to research, organisational barriers to implementation of evidence-based practice, managerial or even collegial constraints, as well as lack of personal critical-thinking and reflective skills. Developing virtual networks using online communication tools such as social media, and initiatives like the VIDPC allows nurses to break down traditional barriers to learning, and facilitates collaboration, sharing, scholarship and campaigns. Using examples from her own experience I will discuss how nurses can harness online networking for practice development at both individual and professional levels
