Structural / Electronic Resources

Structural and Electronic Resources refer to the structural and electronic elements of a care unit that facilitate the ability of individual team members to use best practice (or research) knowledge. Individuals completing the ACT are asked to indicate how often they use a variety of structural and electronic resources on their care unit by answering eleven items (7 items on structural resources and 4 items on electronic resources) using the 5-point frequency scale. Final structural resources and electronic resources scores are obtained for each individual by obtaining a count of the number of resources he or she indicated using. Higher scores reflect the use of more structural and electronic resources on the care unit.
