Technology is integral to successful implementation in many projects,   through either support or integration or both. Name at least one   technology that could improve the implementation process and the   outcomes of your EBP project. Do you plan to use this technology? If   not, what are the barriers that prevent its use?

Technology has become an important factor in health care, and is used daily by most medical facilities, clinics, and home health agencies. Technology in health care can have its downfalls but has been shown to be very beneficial overall. Some ways that it has shown to benefit health care is by improving quality and safety, increase efficiency of health care and test results, improve public communication with health care, increase support of care in communities, build health skills and provide advanced learning, and allow information to be easily communicated between health care professionals (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2019).

 

For my project, technology plays a major role in the implementation of pressure ulcer prevention. Technology can be used to to educate the patient and staff for proper interventions and prevention of pressure ulcers. Another technology that can be implemented in the units is taking pictures of the wounds by the wound care nurses or doctors to document and evaluate the progression and healing of the pressure ulcers. I am using technology to educate the staff and patient about the pressure ulcer prevention and how the nutrition can be helpful to achieve this goal.
