#WeNurses - Thursday 26th October 2017 8pm (GMT Standard Time) Mobile phones - an essential nursing tool ?

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

Two conversations caught my eye on Twitter last night, both seemed to get a lot of air time.  The first conversation was sparked by this tweet from @DebsCooper131:



The tweet got many responses and a good deal of interaction with lots of people tweeting about finding and loosing pens.  It was a good fun sort of thread.

The second tweet and ensuing conversation that captured my interest was sparked by this Tweet from @captaintau:


There were lots of answers to this tweet and subsequent conversation, and I have to admit that some of the comments surprised me a little.

The two tweets got me thinking as both mention tools that we can use in nursing, the humble pen – been around for eons, everybody has one in their pocket (or even three if you are super organised) its a pretty useful communication device and no one questions its use in nursing; then we have the smartphone – its been around for a bit, it fits in your pocket, its a really useful communication device and yet we seem to question it’s use ! The two devices, pen and smartphone both seem quite useful to me however the two Twitter conversations could not have been more diverse.

The conversation around the pen was light hearted and fun but the conversation about the smartphone could not have been more intense.  I mentioned above that I was surprised by some of the tweets … and I was.  Some people were adamant that it is unprofessional to use a smartphone as a nurse, that it was too “tempting” for nurses to have smartphones in their pockets and why would they need a smartphone anyway ?!!

Can I just say this here and now …. GOOD GRIEF !!!

Firstly a device or a tool no matter how technological can never be unprofessional, ( I am currently rolling my eyes) it’s the inappropriate use of such things that is unprofessional.  A smartphone is a pocket sized communication tool that gives us a world of knowledge and expertise in the palm of our hand ….. why on earth would we not use that?  I would actually argue that not to have one is unprofessional. As for nurses being “tempted” if they have access to a smartphone whilst on duty (again I roll my eyes) I challenge any nurse to find the time to be tempted !! I know that when I do clinical work I really don’t have time to think about anything but the people I am caring for.

What worries me more about both of these conversations is that our willingness to accept that a nurse needs a pen and that it is a valid nursing tool for 2017 (I rarely use a pen in my personal life, yet at work could not get through a second of clinical practice without one) yet our complete inability to accept that a smartphone is not a valid nursing tool (rolls eyes for third time)

There is so much that the smartphone has to offer nursing – access to information, access to expertise, bedside recording, access to records when and where we need it, access to apps, access to the internet, portable communication and all in your pocket.  The pen … well that just writes, and maybe stirs your coffee from time to time.  I was in a restaurant the other day and the waitress got out a smartphone to take my order, I didnt think it was unprofessional of her … I thought “wow, how fab is that?” Go into any Apple store and the sales assistants all use smartphones to help you make a purchase .. are they unprofessional? Does anyone question them? No ! So lets get over this …. smartphones are a smart way to work not an unprofessional way to work.

I was glad to see that Ann-Marie Riley (@AnnMarieRiley10) from Nottingham University Hospitals tweeted and shared her experience, as I know that they are really embracing the use of smartphones for nurses at Nottingham:





I think Ann-Marie has hit the nail firmly on the head – why wouldn’t we use technology? It’s definitely the smart thing to do – we don’t need to work harder as nurses, we need to work smarter, we need to embrace the technology, we need to stop being fearful.  We are are the people who make ourselves look professional, technology is merely a tool and it cant take away our professionalism.

This #WeNurses discussion aims to explore this subject in greater depth and ask:

  • Do you use a smartphone as part of clinical practice?
  • What are the benefits of using a smartphone in clinical practice?
  • What stops us from using smartphones?
  • What are the perceived professionalism issues and how can we overcome them? 
  • What do you do if you are challenged by a patient or colleague over smartphone use?
  • What are your top uses for a smartphone in clinical practice?

 Chat Summary

 

This discussion started off a few days early with a poll around if people used their mobile phones in clinical practice ... the results were surprising:

What surprised me most about this poll was that overwhelmingly people do use their mobile phones in practice ... yet there is still some persisting views that it is unprofessional to do so.  The poll and the twitter conversation that followed were in complete opposition to one another ... the majority of voices in the discussion seemed to naysay the use of smart phones as a nursing tool however the poll clearly shows that they are being used. 

The discussion started by exploring the same question as the poll:



There were diverse responses to this question:














 

Question two dug a little deeper exploring the specific uses of smartphones:




Access to information was seen as a huge benefit to most:




















We then asked what stops us from using smartphones in clinical practice:



This is where the discussion really got quite interesting with some polar views evident:



























 

There were, however some wise words shared:










 

The discussion moved on to how we could over come perceived views of unprofessionalism:

 













 

Question 5 explored the more practical aspect to smartphone use .. what to do if you are challenged?













 

The final question asked people to share how they DO use their smartphones in practice:






















Some people shared their final thoughts and words of smartphone wisdom:










The smartphone is an opportunity to provide the very best care we can.  It can save us time, give us knowledge, remind us, give us tools to do our work ... why are we being so resistant ... it's not the smartphone that has a professionalism issue it is people! It's time to stand up and challenge anyone who says smartphones are unprofessional ... i would even challenge then that not to use my smartphone in clinical practice would be unprofessional. 


Food for thought ? I hope so
