Reminders, Cues and Motivators - How to do it

You are here

Electronic health record systems and smart phone apps are built to provide reminders for desired behaviors but if you don’t have electronic means, you need to find other mechanisms for communicating reminders.

How do you communicate other important information?

Reminders can be added to your regular written or verbal communication with staff. Cues and prompts can also be incorporated into the environment whether electronic or not. Signs posted in highly visible areas are one simple method of cuing people to use a particular EBP.

Rewards for excellence can be offered in a number of ways that make it clear that providing EBP with fidelity is a behavior that is encouraged and rewarded in your organization.
