BIDH3008: Digital health in practice

This unit of study aims to provide senior students with a range of experiences on which they can make evidence based decisions about digital health. In particular, this unit will provide students with opportunities to examine how emerging technologies affect interdisciplinary communication and healthcare, strategies for interacting with patients and clients using different technologies, the opportunities technology presents in different Australian health contexts by drawing upon their clinical experiences and research literature, and the challenges surrounding digital health uptake and use in practice. Students will develop skills identified as key for future clinicians. 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.
