Interdisciplinary eHealth - HSBH3008

Year - 2020

This unit of study aims to provide senior students with a range of eHealth experiences on which they can make evidence-based decisions. In particular, this unit will provide students with opportunities to examine: how emerging technologies affect patient-centred, interdisciplinary communication and healthcare; strategies for interacting with patients and clients using different technologies; how technology affects health care in different Australian health contexts by drawing upon their clinical experiences and research literature; issues surrounding eHealth practice; innovations in eHealth including designing health apps for mobile devices; the role of technology in healthcare management. Students will develop skills identified as key for future clinicians and create an ePortfolio to showcase their learning to potential employers. This unit will also enhance students as learners by providing them with reflective learning skills, interdisciplinary health experiences and opportunities to integrate their clinical and university learning experiences through case-based learning.
