Abstract:

Session presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013

Providing nursing care in a developing country brings many challenges, the least of which is accessing evidencebased

practice. The use of handheld technology has helped a number of African and Haitian nurses do a better

job at meeting client needs when there is no access to electricity, books, or even internet (all the necessites of

America's knowledge management network). These handhelds include smartphones and tablets that have been

donated and have been loaded with software that allows for quick portable access to essential information. Lived

experiences will be shared.
