As discussed by Meetoo, Rylance & Abuhaimid (2018) the technological innovation of mobile health has the potential to change healthcare in the clinical setting and non-clinical setting. It could enhance patient education, prevent disease, improve diagnosis and research-based treatment, reduce healthcare costs, and enable patients to manage long-term conditions. This article discusses the benefits of apps, digital devices, wearable sensors, monitoring devices, implantable sensors, and lab-on-a-chip. Although mobile health opportunities can benefit society there are large information gaps regarding the long-term effects, acceptability, costs, and risks. Due to this, there is a significant need to continue research to evaluate the factors needed to standardize the implementation of mobile health into healthcare while maintaining the rights of the individuals. Due to the increasing availability of these new technological advancements, it is important that the nursing curriculum and patient education evolve to educate on how to use new healthcare technology. I chose this article because technology is rapidly advancing, and many people are falling behind and do not understand how to use modern technology making it difficult to implement widespread. These advancements can positively impact patient care and education. The adaption of this technology is inevitable and therefore needs to be discussed and incorporated into the nursing curriculum and patient education fields. We are already using modern technology in the nursing school curriculum, making online programs more accessible to students and online simulation courses as part of the curriculum. In addition to using these technologies, it is important to teach nursing students about new healthcare technology so they are familiar with new practices that are offered to patients and can therefore help to teach them and create new innovative ways of providing effective patient care. post2 Communication between a patient and a nurse is an important relationship to provide quality and safe care. A societal factor, that can affect this communication, is when a patient has limited English skills. According to Squires (2018), these patients are identified as limited English proficiency (LEP) and this lack of English skills can impact patient outcomes and healthcare delivery. Patients with LEP change the way nurses provide care and present patient education and a bond is needed to maintain the practice standards and improve outcomes. As a lactation consultant, encouraging and supporting breastfeeding skills requires effective communication for all patients to be successful in their breastfeeding experience. The study from the Communication Barrier in Health Care Setting as Perceived by Nurses and Patients (Sethi & Rani, 2017) describes results that can be helpful in establishing effective nurse-patient communication. This article was chosen because of the reliable source, applicable timeframe, and research information. The cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted on 50 nurses and 50 patients which identified that spoken language and cultural differences were a communication barrier for the nurse and patient. Improvement in education and training can help nurses communicate with patients that maintain good interpersonal relationships and safe clinical practice.
