Abstract

There is ongoing debate around the concept of e-professionalism in the healthcare professions, with many incidents of unprofessional behaviour still reported despite policy and professional guidance having been in place for several years. This project aimed to evaluate and validate a decision-making tool for assessing whether behaviours in social media are acceptable or unacceptable. A pre-test, post-test survey design assessed the internal validity and reliability of the tool. A survey was also used to evaluate the usability, usefulness and relevance to nursing practice. 45 nurses completed the pre-test, post-test validation component and 122 evaluated the tool. The tool had excellent internal validity and reliability. The tool could be used to facilitate the development of policy and professional guidance better aligned with perspectives about what is deemed as unprofessional for the nursing profession and for the education of nurses, students and healthcare professionals on the topic of e-professionalism.
