Farrell, Maureen, Baldwin, Ian and Fealy, Nigel (2011) Postgraduate Nurses' Use of Personal Digital Assistants in Critical Care. Electronic Journal of Health Informatics, 6 (3). pp. 1-8. ISSN 1446-4381


Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) have been considered for their potential for use by post-graduate critical care nurses at the point of care. The PDAs were used mainly to record their competencies and patient information in real time. A study of fourteen post-graduate nurses studying at RMIT was taken for a twelve month period. In general acute care wards, PCs are limited. This is where the PDA could be useful particularly in the form of a smartphone or tablet.
