This unit of study exposes students to what quality in healthcare comprises and how quality and clinical governance are applied to digitisation. Nursing standards for health information technology and advanced roles for nurses in this area will be examined. Students will also be introduced to the change and project management skills required to successfully implement a digital health application. Lastly, frameworks to formally evaluate post-implementation in relation to efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction will be explored.
