Family Planning Services Digitalization: Implications to Nursing (Published)

This research examines the changing nature of family planning services in Nigeria, investigating the complex interaction between traditional practices, cultural influences, and the continuous integration of digital technologies. Although there has been notable improvement, the availability and use of family planning services continue to encounter ongoing obstacles that are deeply founded in cultural attitudes and structural shortcomings within the healthcare infrastructure. Historically, family planning in Nigeria has mostly depended on traditional practices and cultural beliefs, which have impeded the widespread use of contemporary contraceptive technologies. The intricate interplay of cultural elements leads to a significant percentage of the population being deprived of a wide array of family planning options. The issues are worsened by the healthcare system, which is characterised by limited resources and geographical inequality. The use of digital technology into family planning services offers a revolutionary chance for change. Contraception monitoring applications, wearable gadgets, and telemedicine provide novel methods to improve the accessibility, accuracy, and effectiveness of reproductive healthcare. The research highlights the significance of artificial intelligence and machine learning in customising preventative interventions. Nevertheless, the implementation of digital family planning services presents obstacles such as privacy issues and the need for fair technology availability. The objective of this research is to conduct a thorough analysis of the intricacies related to digitalization, while considering both the advantages and disadvantages. The future of family planning services in Nigeria hinges upon not only technology advancements, but also on cooperative endeavours, cultural awareness, and meticulous strategizing. This article explores the ramifications of digitalization on nursing practice, education, and administration, with a particular focus on the crucial role that nurses play in adapting to this transformational environment. This research provides significant insights to facilitate the successful incorporation of digital technology into family planning services, with the aim of creating a more accessible, patient-centered, and technologically advanced reproductive healthcare system in Nigeria.
