This presentation will be in a workshop format with a panel of presenters representing five countries. All speakers will address the question of how are health information tools helping the profession of nursing, thereby giving an international perspective, before inviting the audience to discuss and share their views. Health information tools are numerous, yet little consideration is sometimes given as to how these tools help nursing. Nursing, in this context includes the nurses at the bedside or nurses who work directly with individuals, families or communities, as well as nursing administration, management, research and education. The panel will describe how health information tools help nursing using numerous examples and the following five point framework: Access to evidence-based resources; improved communication; monitoring of patients; improved safety and increased efficiency.
