Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre (HaBIC)

Health informatics knowledge for the workforce

Coordinated interprofessional curriculum renewal for ehealth capability in clinical health professions degrees

This HaBIC-led project addressed key barriers to effective knowledge transfer of clinical informatics and ehealth capabilities among health professionals in the higher education sector.

The HaBIC led national health informatics expert research team comprised Dr Kathleen Gray and Ms Dawn Choo, Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre, University of Melbourne, Professor Anthony Maeder, University of Western Sydney, and Dr Kerryn Butler-Henderson and Dr Sue Whetton, University of Tasmania. The project team, with support from the Commonwealth Government Office for Learning and Teaching, built on its previous national research to develop a clinical informatics and ehealth curriculum aligned with the Certified Health Informatician Australasia competencies and designed for postgraduate learning. A semesterised online subject based on this curriculum was trialled successfully with an interprofessional student group.
