Connecting Informatics with Clinical Education – Nic Bartholomew, BCU Liberating the NHS: An Information Revolution: as a key component of assuring data quality, national education and training in approved informatics standards will need to be available. (DH, 2010) Methods: 9 regional HEIs surveyed 10 healthcare professions 186 students – online survey 15 staff – online survey & interview Survey & interview designs informed by learning objectives identified in Learning to Manage Health Information: a theme for clinical education (CFH, 2009) NHS West Midlands Care Pathway Group Project, 2009/10 Question: To what extent are Health Informatics learning objectives embedded within HE healthcare curricula in the West Midlands? Aims: To establish whether Health Information learning objectives are currently attainable through pre-reg healthcare programmes in the region To establish whether graduates have the opportunity to be equipped with essential ICT and Health Information skills needed for health care practice in the 21st Century.

HI Criteria Range Literature evaluation 7.2 Literature searching 14.3 Clinical governance and audit 18.2 Assistive tech 24.6 Telemedicine 28.5 Multidisciplinary communication 28.6 Decision support tools 35.7 Clinical coding 42.8 Record keeping standards 42.9 Data protection 46.2 HI projects and initiatives 50 Clinical information systems 50 EHR management 57.1 Communication technologies 64.3 Management of clinical data 69.3 Information governance 78.6 largely relevant but under assessed Are HI topics relevant to your programme? Highly relevant Some relevance Limited relevance Dispersion between Relevance and Assessment: high = misaligned curricula Formative Summative Unassessed Are HI topics assessed in your programme? Perceived barriers to HI integration within HE healthcare curricula Potential complexity of electronic information systems / multiple systems on multiple sites Limited time within programmes to deliver HI content Limited access to computers in placement / logistical problems with student access Varied quality of mentor / supervisor providing systems training HI related topics require clarification / the term Health Informatics needs demystifying Lack of staff expertise
Nic Bartholomew Senior Learning & Teaching Fellow Faculty of Health, BCU http://www.igte-learning.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/igte/index.cfm DH will be releasing a suite of informatics modules to supplement the existing Information Governance Module 61% students would value more training on clinical information systems A training solution? Information Governance Health & Care Records Communication & Information Transfer Data, Information and Knowledge Clinical Coding & Terminology Clinical Systems & Applications eHealth: the Future Direction 61% of surveyed students would value further training in the appropriate use of clinical systems with the highest proportion indicating that improved access and practice on systems would be most valued. 64% of respondents would also value having access to a simulated care information system on campus (e.g. SystmOne, Leeds) Also to be available as OER Project Recommendations Emphasise Health Informatics within Occupational Standards Simplify and articulate the LtMHI framework for educators Further reinforce links between faculty and practice partners in relation to HI training
