In February 2018 chnnl was launched in a one year feasibility study at the Department of General Surgery, Middlemore Hospital. Read on to learn how it went.

After the first initial meetings, it was decided to open the project to include all new graduate nurses in CMDHB and to enrol all Resident Medical Officers as they rotate through general surgery.

There were 67 new graduate nurses, with 52 successfully recruited into the study. Every quarter (3 monthly) a new group of Resident Medical Officers attended an orientation to the general surgery department. They were asked to participate in the study and we had a 95% sign up rate.

Here's What They Said

Data from the App has helped my understanding what is really going on for our nurses, both from work and personal issues, and has enabled me to provide the right support to our department.

I had an idea on how to improve handover between ED and the wards and my manager brought it up in a meeting – I was chuffed because I am always too scared to speak up in group meetings.

Our house officers were unanimous in their decision to be involved and participate in this project. Those house surgeons who used it found it very helpful.
