The Experiences of Nursing Students, Mentors and Teachers Regarding eMedication Passport Use in Clinical Practice: A Feedback Survey
The improvement of graduating nurse competence is essential in order to provide safe and professional patient care. The eMedication Passport was introduced as a digital learning tool with the aim of determining whether nursing students have the essential skills to practice medication management safely in health care.
The purpose of the study was to investigate feedback from Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian nursing students, mentors and teachers after their use of the eMedication Passport.
This study was an analysis of quantitative and qualitative data taken from open-ended online questionnaires completed anonymously on the Webropol 3.0 platform.
The positive feedback on the use of eMedication Passport was most pronounced from Estonian nursing students, followed by Latvian and Lithuanian students. In most cases, nurse mentors and teachers did not cooperate when evaluating the development of students’ medication competence.
All respondents emphasized the need for closer cooperation to improve medication competence with the use of the eMedication Passport.
