It is essential that Health Professionals are given the IT skills to make the most efficient use of their time spent away from patients performing administrative tasks. The growing use of new mobile technologies and patient centred devices has also increased the opportunity for health professionals to use point-of-care devices at the patient bedside or in surgery which can increase the patient/clinician experience.
The courses below compliment clinical skills by increasing trust and understanding of the appropriate use of IT in Healthcare. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
