Applied Learning Health Systems short course, Centre for Transformation of Digital Health, University of Melbourne

Am happy to announce that I’m one of the first students to have participated and completed this short course delivered by the Centre for Digital Transformation of Health, University of Melbourne.

As a member of this inaugural programme, I was amongst a midst of Technical Engineers, Government Health personnel, physicians, surgeons and allied health professionals. A truly interdisciplinary approach to healthcare systems. Headed by Professor Wendy Chapman, who is also one of the founders of Women in Digital Health ( WiDH).

In the short course, I was able to break through my day-to-day silos by working with a diverse multi-disciplinary team throughout the course. I learned from a multi-disciplinary team of experts how to access, analyse, and interpret health care data. I also learned the tools, tricks, and practicalities of designing a digital health solution and then evaluating and implementing solutions in practice. I have already started to apply all of these newfound learnings to my job.

I invite you to explore and enrol in the next short course.

Offerings will be May and September this year!

I am so pleased I participated in and had the opportunity to contribute to make this course great.

The team has published the design of the short course in IJMI and hope to publish the outcomes of their evaluation. These evaluations help the centre improve their offerings, ultimately building capacity in the workforce.

If you or any colleagues of yours are interested, please direct them to this website. As an inaugural alumnus, I can highly recommend it.
