Abstract


This study intends to explore knowledge and attitude of final year Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine (NRMSM) students towards the use of EMR systems in hospitals using the KAP survey. Since the medical students’ level of exposure to such technology is unknown, therefore, it is difficult to attain their level of knowledge and attitude. The KAP survey will focus on the evaluation of knowledge, attitude and practice of the participants towards the EMR systems
