Technology is becoming increasingly important in healthcare environments. This course is unique because it focuses on the healthcare professionals using the technology, rather than those developing it.
Our healthcare technology course will provide you with a solid understanding of existing, emerging and future healthcare technology. You’ll learn how to make evidence-based decisions around introducing new technology to your patients and practice.
You’ll also explore the barriers to implementing new technology in healthcare and what you can do to minimise these for your patients.
You’ll gain practical experience of using the latest healthcare technology, as well as learning how to encourage behavioural change to implement technology as a tool for better patient-centred care.
Who is it for?
This course is for anyone working in health and social care who has to introduce or use technology in their roles, particularly to deliver patient care.
Learn how to successfully introduce technology in general care and clinical practice. You’ll explore the barriers to adoption for both service users, carers and health professionals, as well as how to overcome them. This course will enable you to deliver patient-centred care using technology as a tool.
