The importance of interprofessional educational EHR training in nursing programs
Collaborative use of electronic health records (EHRs) is becoming the norm across most patient care facilities, making it increasingly critical for healthcare students to have effective, interprofessional EHR training before entering the workforce. It’s important for nurses to feel comfortable learning about, from, and with students from other disciplines to improve health outcomes for patients. Interprofessional education EHR’s like Lippincott DocuCare offer students the opportunity to get real-life documentation training in a safe and managed environment, making them better practitioners and patient caregivers. Graduating nurses are expected to be able to communicate effectively with colleagues and possess an understanding of common workplace technologies.
