2020 National Survey of Canadian Nurses: Use of Digital Health Technology in Practice

The National Survey of Canadian Nurses constitutes a series of surveys on the use and the impact of digital health technologies on nursing practice commissioned by Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) in partnership with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association (CNIA). This report yields the main results of the third iteration of the survey conducted by Leger through an online questionnaire between January 20 to March 29, 2020 on a sample of 1,642 nurses across Canada, 1,132 of whom are providing direct patient care. These nurses were contacted and recruited through invitation emails using four main channels: AQIISTI Infolettre, CNA newsletter, CNIA Newsblast and Leger’s online panel. The sample was weighted by 2018 CIHI workforce data to make it representative of the Canadian nursing population. In addition, ethics approval was obtained prior to starting the survey.
