Technology’s Role in Mitigating Cognitive Overload – Rhonda Collins, DNP, RN, FAAN
In this episode of the Caring Greatly podcast, we look at how cognitive load and overload affect nursing practice. We consider what can happen when technology is introduced into clinical workflow without considering how it may diminish clinicians' ability to focus on critical patient care tasks. We delve into how technology can be used to mitigate cognitive overload so that clinicians can be fully present at the bedside. And we look at the role of clinical leaders in shepherding in the future of healthcare technology.
