Title Australian Skill Needs Analysis of Health Informatics Professionals: Volume 1: Rationale & Methods, Key Findings & Conclusions
Description This report proposes an educational framework for HI professionals to support student mobility, trans-national and borderless education. Health Professionals with various roles in HI need to be properly educated for their respective HI roles. The report is based on the results of a web-based survey by Australian Health Professionals on the preferred knowledge/skills set for Health Informatics Professionals, the IMIA set of recommendations on education and IMIA's scientific map. Benner's 5 levels of competencies were applied to measure the degree of competency required for each skill/knowledge. The Health Professionals' perceived degree of competency required for a total of 69 specific skills and knowledge items in five skill categories is presented in this report as well as the overall results for each of the 5 categories and interesting key findings and demographical differences. The development of a comprehensive HI education framework needs to take into account various health professions and the various roles in Health Informatics.
