Abstract [en]

AimTo describe variations in nurses' perceptions of using a computerised decision support system (CDSS) in drug monitoring. BackgroundThere is an increasing focus on incorporating informatics into registered nurses' (RNs) clinical practice. Insight into RNs' perceptions of using a CDSS in drug monitoring can provide a basis for further development of safer practices in drug management. MethodA qualitative interview study of 16 RNs. Data were analysed using a phenomenographic approach. ResultsThe RNs perceived a variety of aspects of using a CDSS in drug monitoring. Aspects of time' were evident, as was giving a standardisation' to the clinical work. There were perceptions of effects of obtained knowledge and evidence' and the division of responsibilities' between RNs and physicians of using the CDSS. ConclusionThe RNs perceived a CDSS as supportive in drug monitoring, in terms of promoting standardised routines, team-collaboration and providing possibilities for evidence-based clinical practice. ImplicationsImplementing a CDSS seems to be one feasible strategy to improve RNs' preconditions for safe drug management. Nurse managers' engagement and support in this process are vital for a successful result.
