Abstract

Home telehealth (HT) refers to the use of videoconferencing to provide care to patients remotely and can help older adults age in place. However, these technologies are unlikely to impact care unless health care providers are motivated to use them. Education may play a key role in increasing motivation to use and competence regarding HT. To help guide the development of nursing education to facilitate adoption and use, the current study examined predictors of Dutch nurses’ willingness to use HT, based on a survey of 67 Dutch nurses with and 126 without HT experience. Nurses’ willingness to use this technology was predicted by HT’s (a) perceived usefulness to the client, (b) effort expectancy, (c) social influence, and (d) cost expectations. These observed relationships are anticipated to help with the development of effective educational programs to increase HT use and, therefore, improve older adults’ quality of life.
