Professional nursing care is experiencing far-reaching changes. In addition to a shortage of skilled personnel and demographic challenges, there is also an increasing outlay on documentation. As a result of the latest legal initiatives the transparency of nursing care services also acquires an economic importance. By way of contrast, in more than 70 % of clinics nursing staff are still using paper and pens to produce their documentation. However, this is where increased interest clearly exists in launching corresponding digitalisation projects in nursing over the coming months. However, the digital transformation in nursing care is not simply a major IT project. The successful digitalisation of this professional group also depends on a number of diverse nursing and organisational aspects. In this respect practical support for the nursing process by means of innovative workflows, technology and skills has an important part to play. This workshop offers knowledge based on best practice, shows some pitfalls and explains the particular characteristics of professional nursing care. An exemplary digitalisation process is explained using a combination of short lectures, statements and a subject-specific dialogue, with the involvement of the participants.
