Hospitals and Healthcare
There are many challenges facing hospitals and healthcare in the modern world we are living in. I've created this curation collection to save articles that help me understand what modern health in society is.  The articles here are general in nature and placed here to promote discussion. We advise that you talk with your health professional before changing any of your medication or treatment options.  Any of the online courses listed here may (or may not) be open for access or enrolment. Most are free to browse, some may charge a small fee if you wish to receive a certificate or record of learning.   Every effort is made to ensure that these links are up to date and be aware that some of these articles may be behind a 'paywall'. If you can’t get into an article, email me and I may be able to assist.  Views are my own.

Technology for Education in Clinical Healthcare (EdTech)

Technology for Education in Clinical Healthcare (EdTech) | Hospitals and Healthcare | Scoop.it
Learners of today have a different relationship with technology than you may have. The digital landscape provides exciting opportunities for educators to embrace the EdTech movement, and to create learning modules that can excite and motivate your learners. The implementation of technology in our teaching often involves thinking very differently about our current educational practices and imagining new ways of working.

During this 8 week online course, you will learn about and apply commonly used and intuitive technologies that will assist you to creatively and effectively design your teaching activities, and to optimise their educational value to your students and trainees. We will consider the importance of human cognitive processing in eLearning and cover basic principles of educational design.

Doctors call for stricter rules as patients embrace telehealth

Doctors call for stricter rules as patients embrace telehealth | Hospitals and Healthcare | Scoop.it
Doctors are calling for telehealth Medicare rebates to be restricted to a patient's regular GP or a referred specialist, saying pop-up services are leading to fragmented patient care.
Peter Mellow's insight:
So the consumer/patient freedom of choice is now going to be locked down? I appreciate that 'pop-up' medicine is a dangerous precedent, but so is locking things down to protect GP income?
