1.  A Deliberate and Rigorous Approach to Development of Patient-centered Technologies 
Seminars in oncology nursing  2011;27(3):183-191.
Objectives
Many technologies intended for patient use are never developed or evaluated with principles of user-centered design. In this review, we explore different approaches to assessing usability and acceptability, drawn from selected exemplar studies in the health sciences literature.
Data sources
Peer-reviewed research manuscripts were selected from Medline and other data sources accessible through pubmed.gov. We also present a framework for developing patient-centered technologies that we recently employed.
Conclusions
While there are studies utilizing principles of user-centered design, many more do not report formative usability testing results and may only report post-hoc satisfaction surveys. Consequently, adoption by user groups may be limited.
Implications for Nursing Practice
We encourage nurses in practice to look for and examine usability testing results prior to considering implementation of any patient-centered technology.
