Evidence-based practice has become valuable and a driving

Various safeguards and decision-making support tools exist to
support safe practice. One of them is the use of IV pump
instead of IV drip in administering of Medications or IV solution.
EHR and pic systems are also new technologies that are used
to enhance service delivery.

  1. Please tell me what
    challenges you have faced
    in dealing with other

I have faced a number of challenges dealing with other
disciplines that do not understand the needs of nursing. One of
the challenges is insufficient knowledge in other areas
assigned. This deterred me from delivering quality work.
Further challenge is lack of teamwork among the members. I,
therefore, could not deliver quality services. Communication
barriers and different cultural backgrounds have also been a
challenge, since working with other colleagues that come from
different backgrounds brings a cultural diversity complication.
