In your previous readings, you learned about the digital divide; the gap between those who do and do not have access to the tools and technology available in the market today. Thirty years ago, when we were performing an admission assessment, we would ask patients, “Do you have a telephone in your home?” and not everyone did. Today, we ask, “Do you have access to the internet?” Nurses need to be cognizant of the fact that our patients may not have all the latest and greatest technology tools available to them and be prepared to offer alternatives to ensure that we can meet our patients’ needs. What does your organization offer for those patients that do not always have Internet, computers, phone access?
