BIDH5003: Foundations of digital health

The aim of this unit is to provide students with a strong foundation in digital health on which they can make evidence based decisions. In particular, this unit will provide students with opportunities to examine how technology can affect health and healthcare delivery in different contexts, ethical issues surrounding digital health, how emerging technologies impact on communication, strategies for interacting with patients and clients using different technologies, and the relationship between users, technologies, data and the wider information network. Students will develop their skills in critically thinking about digital health and its potential to support healthcare. Students will use and evaluate a digital health tool and examine in depth how a specific digital intervention impacts on the role of health care providers. This unit will also enable students to be lifelong learners by providing them with reflective learning skills.
