Title: Intention to Use Telemedicine in Palliative Care- A Survey of Nurses in Saudi Arabia

Abstract

Telemedicine is becoming evermore prevalent in healthcare, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic which meant restrictions on people visiting healthcare facilities in person. This paper briefly examines the role of telemedicine in the Saudi health service, especially since the introduction of several applications by the Ministry of Health. Using the Technology Acceptance Model, the proposed study aims to identify how useful Saudi nurses perceived telemedicine to be, how easy they perceive it to be, how these factors affect their intention to make use of telemedicine, and how these two factors (perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use) relate to each other. Data for this study will be gathered by means of an online survey and a sample of Saudi nurses will be obtained by recruiting on social media and asking participants to find others. The descriptive and inferential statistical analyses of the data with be achieved through SPSS. 

Keywords: Saudi Telemedicine; Palliative Care; Saudi Nurses; Technology Acceptance
