Understanding the utilization and impact of digital health technologies on nursing practice

About the Survey

The Canadian Survey of Nurses is a triennial series of surveys investigating the utilization and impact of digital health technologies on nursing practice. Commissioned by Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) in collaboration with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association (CNIA), this data collection initiative targets regulated nurses across various domains of nursing practice and working in diverse care settings across provinces and territories in Canada. The survey is disseminated through an online questionnaire to members of the CNA and CNIA, as well as other participants within the nursing community. To ensure representation across demographics, the results are statistically weighted using the latest workforce data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
