1 Background Information The Thematic Network ENS4Care is an EU funded programme of 24 partners (listed in question 8) led by the European Federation of Nurses Associations, which is expected over two year period to deliver evidence based ICT (Information and Communication Technology) guidelines for the implementation of ehealth services in nursing and social care. This questionnaire aims to collect key information on examples of good practices (e.g. online platforms, services, products, protocols, guidance, clinical guidelines, education and training programmes, etc.) in the EU and EEA countries in respect to nurses and/or social workers for the use of ICT tools/systems in one of the following areas: prevention, clinical practice, advanced roles and nurse eprescribing. It may take approximately 4 minutes to complete the questionnaire, which is available in English only and must be answered in English. All questions with an asterisk must be answered. If you want to submit more than one practice, you need to complete an additional questionnaire. The questionnaire will be open until 14 March If you want to submit more than one practice or if you feel that the practice you are about to submit addressed more than one ENS4Care category (Prevention, Clinical Practice, Advanced Roles or Nurse eprescribing) please remember that you need to submit a second questionnaire.

3 General Information 9. The practice you are submitting belongs to the following ENS4Care area: Prevention Clinical Practice Advanced Roles Nurse eprescribing Prevention The focus of this area will be the use of appropriate techniques to support individuals and groups to make lifestyle changes that promote health and prevent disease. The development of the process of social prescribing to address issues such as social isolation, mental health challenges, recommended levels of physical activity, healthy eating and work life balance will be encouraged. The examples or practices should focus on technologies that are used by nurses or social workers to support individuals or groups in adopting healthier behaviours. The examples may also include technologies that nurses and social workers use themselves or encourage patients and citizens to use to promote their own health, well being or self care. Examples of all types of technologies will be welcome including telephone coaching, etc. Please bear in mind that all examples or practices shall address the following key criteria as conditions of submission: 1. ICT component: the example or practice shall include the use of ICT technologies supporting the delivery of health and social care. 2. Nurses and/or social workers: the example or practice needs to be introduced or implemented primarily with nurses and/or social workers involvement. 3. Cost effectiveness: the example or practice should demonstrate that the services enabled by ICT tools have the potential of providing cost effectiveness to the health and social care system. 4. Patient empowerment: the example or practice should demonstrate that the services enabled by ICT tools have improved or have the potential to improve and empower patients/citizens.. Usability and usefulness of the ICT tool/service: the example or practice should demonstrate that the ICT tool is considered easy to use and useful by both professionals and patients/citizens.. Person centredness, safety and privacy: the example or practice should respect patient (or person) centredness, address issues related to patient safety and respects patient privacy and associated ethical issues. Clinical Practice This area focuses on the most common technologies that nurses and social workers use to deliver integrated care to patients in their daily practice.

4 guidelines or protocols on the use of the technology/itc and how different professionals should interact in the patient care pathway. It is important to look at the necessary organisational changes and clarification as regards roles and responsibilities.

ICT component: the example or practice shall include the use of ICT technologies supporting the delivery of health and social care. 2. Nurses and/or social workers: the good practice needs to be introduced or implemented primarily with nurses and/or social workers involvement. 3. Cost effectiveness: the example or practice should demonstrate that the services enabled by ICT tools have the potential of providing cost effectiveness to the health and social care system. 4. Patient empowerment: the example or practice should demonstrate that the services enabled by ICT tools have improved or have the potential to improve and empower patients/citizens..

Nurse eprescribing Page 4

5 The European Patient Smart Open Services (epsos) defines eprescribing as the electronic prescribing of medicine with the use of software by a legally authorised health professional and the electronic transmission of the prescription data to a pharmacy where the medicine can then be dispensed (epsos 2012). The focus of this nurse eprescribing questionnaire is to identify existing or scheduled programmes of development of nurse eprescribing in European Countries. The main objective is to share existing knowledge and expertise in relation to planning deployment and evaluation of nurse eprescribing with a view to developing a guideline based on best practice and available evidence. When answering the questionnaire you may wish to provide high level information in relation to nurse eprescribing or critical factors that require careful consideration in planning and deployment. For example, you may wish to consider what the key information requirements are to ensure a standardised approach to data collection on every prescription that is written by a prescriber is adopted such as; site, date, prescriber and patient/individual identification, clinical information, medicinal product, dose, frequency, route, or alternatively you may wish to include key recommendations for local delivery and implementation such as; software and network access, patient safety (including clinical decision support and individual patient alerts) and patient identifiers and integration with pharmacy or wider stock control issues. Examples of social workers eprescribing are also welcome. Information provided in this questionnaire will contribute to the development of clinical guidelines and educational resources on implementation of eprescribing systems. Please bear in mind that all examples or practices shall address the following key criteria as conditions of submission: 1. ICT component: the example or practice shall include the use of ICT technologies supporting the delivery of health and social care. 2. Nurses and/or social workers: the example or practice needs to be introduced or implemented primarily with nurses and/or social workers involvement. 3. Cost effectiveness: the example or practice should demonstrate that the nurse eprescribing system has the potential of providing cost effectiveness to the health and social care system. 4. Patient empowerment: the example or practice should demonstrate that the nurse eprescribing system has improved or has the potential to improve and empower patients/citizens (e.g. patients know the medication taken and understand early symptom recognition).. Usability and usefulness of the ICT tool/service: the example or practice should demonstrate that nurse eprescribing system is considered easy to use and useful for professionals.. Person centredness, safety and privacy: the example or practice should respect patient (or person) centredness, address issues related to patient safety and respects patient privacy and associated ethical issues.
