Abstract

There is an urgent need to improve the use and usability of the electronic health record (EHR) in health care to prevent undue patient harm. Professional development educators can use systems thinking and the QSEN competency, Informatics, to educate nurses about such things as nurse-sensitive indicators in preventing medical errors. This article presents teaching tips in using systems thinking to champion communication technologies that support error prevention (betterment). [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2019;50(9):392-397.].
