The right way for nurses to prescribe, administer and critique digital therapies

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

Nurses should be mindful that prescribing and administering digital therapies comes with patient safety responsibilities. Due diligence is required by nurses to ensure that they are prescribing and administering digital therapies to ensure they are safe practitioners in this new health field. Nurses without requisite digital literacy and critiquing skills should consider what actions they need to undertake to up-skill, if it is required, to maintain their safe practice standards.
