Description

The current study investigated the influence of information technology support on knowledge management process of nurses in patient care. Recent concerns about the issue of nursing care delivery have accentuated the need for more improved health services. The importance of knowledge management in improving performance has been strongly highlighted in existing literature. Paucity of studies exist in information technology-based knowledge management of nurses in Nigeria. A quantitative approach comprising of a descriptive survey design was used. Proportionate stratified sampling was used to select registered nurses from the teaching hospitals under study. Only registered nurses on duty were included in the study and sample size consisted of 320 registered nurses. SPSS version 22 and AMOS was used analyze the collected data. The structural models were developed to test the hypothesized relationships. The researchers adhered to the principles of trustworthiness and ethical principles. The results affirmed that information technology support influences knowledge management process in nursing care roles. Based on the findings, information technology is required to promote knowledge management process coupled with appropriate coordination to develop a knowledge-friendly environment for nurses. In view of the emergence of the knowledge-based society and increased demands for quality healthcare by patients, the usage of functional and up-to-date technological infrastructure is necessary to achieve improved nursing care within healthcare organizations. This study demonstrates that information technology support is a crucial factor affecting nursing outcomes. Effective and efficient knowledge management strategies that can improve productivity of healthcare organizations should be adopted for enhancing knowledge management processes of nurses. Increased awareness of the importance of information technology support in nursing care delivery and invest in functional technological infrastructure in order to facilitate and improve knowledge management process in nursing practice.
