Objectives: In healthcare, a variety of quality management practices are used. Although they are important sources for quality improvement initiatives, they do not focus on each particular process. On the other hand, "Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies" (COBIT) offers a well-defined process representation structure for rep...

This chapter aims to shed light on university teachers' adoption and use of information communication technologies (ICT) at a university in its awareness/exploration stage of blended learning adoption. The goal was to identify how teachers' attitudes to innovation adoption influences the adoption of ICT for teaching/learning. An online survey showe...

Nursing clinical learning environments are particularly important for the achievement of good practice in clinical training of student nurses, and thus, for the nursing competence development. Hence, it is important to have an instrument consisting of reliable and valid criteria for assessing the clinical learning environment, applicable in differe...

... We selected COBIT because it is widely used by IT professionals: IT managers, IT experts, and auditors [16,17]. Another element which influenced the selection of COBIT was the fact that the idea and concepts of CO-BIT have been used for quality improvement and standard process model definition in healthcare [18]. Each COBIT concept used is tailored to a structure suitable for agriculture. ...
... In addition, having been translated into more than 27 languages, such as in Sweden [20]. Germany [21], Italy [22], Ghana [23] and Spanish [24], Dutch [25], Greek [16], Turkish [26], Korea [27], the scale is now used in over 40 countries [28]. Current studies in a variety of countries considered that CLES+T, which includes five basic elements of clinical learning such as supervision and/or mentorship, role of the nurse teacher, a learning-conducive atmosphere on the ward, nursing care provided on the ward, and the leadership style of the ward manager, can be a useful instrument to assess those elements of clinical learning environment at the international level [19]. ...
... Inclusion of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), case studies and video narratives provide a dynamic learning experience as opposed to traditional passive pedagogical elements, facilitating critical thinking and development of long-term knowledge. 19 This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a novel e-learning intervention to increase therapeutic radiographers' knowledge, awareness and confidence surrounding the LEs of pelvic radiotherapy, and to investigate whether participants' perceptions of their professional responsibility to provide such information changed post-intervention. Additionally, our methods are easily applicable to radiology and other healthcare professionals, permitting development of similar training/CPD interventions across the wider workforce. ...
... 42 Student nurses also report how balancing placement with their university work can impact their eating behaviours, 16 with stress amongst both student and staff nurses leading to interruptions in regular meal schedules and poor eating habits. 22,57 Skipping meals often results in individuals having a higher intake of high fat snacks 2,51 and not engaging in physical activity 42,43 during their working days. Research has also highlighted a high prevalence of smoking and alcohol behaviours among nurses (and student nursessee). ...
... improvement of the e-discussion board value for students (Trobec 2013), and improvement in the use of other, inexpensive alternatives to classical simulations (e.g. augmented reality, role play simulations) (Pucer 2011;Pucer, Trobec, and Žvanut 2014). ...
... The introduction of technological tools has transformed nursing education in many ways and facilitated flexible new approaches in the education of nursing students [15]. Previous research has questioned whether technology can be used to facilitate the development of critical thinking [16]. The use of tailored technological tools in nursing education seems still to be somewhat limited [17], but earlier research has shown that mobile-based learning may support the development of knowledge and nursing students' skills both outside and within clinical practice [18]. ...
... Since the emergence of the early model of technology diffusion defined by Rogers (1995), the age of users has been treated as one of the most important determinants of the (Chen &Chan, 2011). Similarly, the degree of voluntariness, i.e., the mandatory vs. optional usage of innovation, and the type of voluntariness, i.e., environmental-based or user-based voluntariness, are recognized as moderating variables of the perceived attributes of technology on the diffusion of a given technology (Wu & Lederer, 2009;Žvanut et al., 2011). The influence of gender on new technology adoption has received considerable attention in the existing literature using TAM and UTAUT models. ...
