|Title:||Balancing the use of technology with the "art of nursing" in emergency nursing.|
|Conference Name:||CENA 7th International Conference for Emergency Nurses: Emergency nursing. Balancing the art and science.|
|Conference Date:||October 7-10, 2009|
|Conference Place:||Gold Coast, Queensland|
|Abstract:||Can emergency nurses assess and care for their patients with only nursing skills? The explosion and invasion of technology into our workplace has encouraged the use of a ‘no touch technique’ by a vast majority of emergency nurses. If you stick on some ECG dots, NIBP cuff, sat probe and stick a thermometer in their ear, you have completed a set of basic vital signs without any real patient contact. What is the next step—–microchip insertion, tattooed barcodes for scanning at triage? Is it now time to refocus emergency nursing to patient assessment using nursing skills?|
