The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is proud to offer our Understanding Data in Health Care Single Unit of Study (SUS) with support from The Australian Digital Health Agency.
Clinical communication and data science are dependent on the existence of accurate and organised data. As the role of technology continues to expand in health settings, it is more important than ever to ensure nurses are properly equipped with the knowledge and skills to utilize digital health to improve patient outcomes.
With this in mind, the SUS introduces students to the paradigm of data in the digital age and the principles of appropriate data collection, storage and usage. It also covers how data impacts on patients’ rights and the ethical and legal requirements related to organisational duty of care.
The SUS, which is now open for enrollment, can be used as an elective in ACN’s Graduate Certificate courses in:
- Acute Care Nursing
- Community & Primary Health Care Nursing
- Cancer Nursing
- Orthopaedic Nursing
- Paediatric Nursing
- Perioperative Nursing.
This is a great chance for you to upskill and improve your digital literacy, no matter what setting you work in!
