Abstract

One hundred and forty-three nurses served as their own controls in planning care for hypothetical patients under three different manipulated conditions of decision support: (a) use of traditional resources, (b) use of a computerized protocol for care planning (NPC), and (c) use of an NPC protocol and a self-study guide. A series of 3 × 5 repeated-measures ANOVAs (analyses of variance) were used to evaluate the main effects and interactions of the experimental treatment conditions and the two nurse attribute variables of education and experience (each with five levels). The ANOVAs demonstrated significantly higher mean ratings of quality for care planned under both computerized decision support conditions than for the traditional condition on all three patient problem situations (F(df2) = 7.9, p = 0.001). Time on task was also significant (F(df2) = 5.7, p = 0.003), with use of the decision-support consultants tending to increase time in planning.
