____ 3. Computers are important for evidence-based practice because:
1)
They are available in all healthcare institutions.
2)
Extra training is not required for information retrieval.
3)
Information can be accessed and managed more efficiently.
4)
All of the best evidence is located on a computer.

ANS: 3
To incorporate the current, best evidence in your nursing practice, you must be able to locate the evidence, evaluate its quality and relevance to the problem, and apply the solution to clinical care. Computers are useful for data access, management, storage, and retrieval when conducting research or reviewing research findings. Specialized software aids in statistical analysis of research data. Computers are not available to all personnel in all healthcare institutions nor can the entirety of best evidence be found electronically. Training and experience are required to learn how to use a computer as well as how to conduct a literature search.

2)
Log on and remain with her while she views the record.
3)
Notify your supervisor that the new employee needs a password.
4)
Inform her that she will not receive a password until her orientation is complete.

ANS: 3
Never share your password with another person or log on to a computer to allow another access to information. Instead, notify your supervisor that the new employee needs a password. In most hospitals, nurses are given a password during their orientation.
