Coordinated Interprofessional Curriculum Renewal for eHealth Capability in Clinical Health Professional Degrees

The final report for Advancing Ehealth Education for the Clinical Health Professions 2014 has been released. The project aimed to encourage and support program coordinators and directors of Australian undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programs in all allied health, nursing and medical professions to address the need for ehealth education for entry-level clinical health professionals, has been published.

The rationale for this project was that new initiatives in professional education, training, learning and development are required to build the capabilities that the Australian health workforce needs to work in a national ehealth system. In Australia, very few educational providers in the health professions had developed a systematic approach to teach, assess, evaluate or audit this aspect of professional education, and relevant curriculum initiatives were not widely known.
