Education in health informatics seminar – Friday 19 June 2009, UWE, Bristol

You are warmly invited to join us on Friday 19 June at the University of West of England for a seminar on education in health informatics.

Responding to both the current and future needs of education in health informatics remains a considerable yet exciting challenge. New healthcare technology is available in many Trusts and PCTs nationally. Clinical and non clinical staff need to be equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills to support organisational change and realise the true benefits of eHealth.

We are delighted to announce that Di Millen, Head of Informatics at NHS Connecting for Health, will be presenting on the recent relaunch of ‘Learning to Manage Health Information – a theme for clinical education’. For more information, please see:

Jane Hadfield, Director of Human Resources, North Bristol Trust will discuss informatics in workforce development.

We also have speakers from Ideal and UWE who are working collaboratively to address local educational challenges.

Now that the new contract has been signed with BT for the provision of RiO in the South, many PCTs and MHTs will be planning their RiO implementaion project. We would urge you to stay for the afternoon RiO workshop.

The afternoon programme will cover key aspects involved in planning and running your RiO roll out. Jill de Bene, Southern Delivery Director, Community & Mental Health Business Unit, BT is supporting the event and will offer guidance on effective working with your LSP.

To book your place or to request further details, please contact Matthew Bartlett on 01483 453508 or email
