Course objectives
At the end of this course the student will have to demonstrate during steered discussions insight and basic skills and habbits in data handling and processing of health related data, information and concepts as defined in the following paragraphs. This course (in the part dedicated to healthcare informatics) is focused on discusing possibilities, limitations and risks of information and communication technologies in the healthcare environment. It is not predominantly targeted at teaching computer skills. In the seminars devoted to "Health Informatics" focus is on obtaining insight and basic skills and habbits in data handling and processing. Ths student will have to demonstrate the ability of making reasoned decisions in the following areas: 1. Searching, retrieval, storage, use of data, information and knowledge in medical decision making in diagnostics, treatment.
2. Improvement of skills in critical thinking especially in the area of Evidence Based Medicine.
3. Understanding the logics of the health and health care environment, communication with professionals and lay community (patients and their families).
4. Gaining innitial insight in the core areas of health care informatics competences (possibilities, limitations and risks) in use of information and communication technologies in a medical environment.
Seminars do not focus on training activities related to specific hardware or software resources. This is not a course in computer literacy (working with concrete software programs).
Learning outcomes
The student will be able to independently and actively seek and use tools, procedures and processes facilitating the correct use of information society environment for more effective study of medicine and more efficient provision of medical services in individual medical specialties; The student will understand the possibilities and risks of digitization and use of digital information and communication tools in the process of providing medical services; The student will get a general overview of the benefits of the information society in the medical domain and will acquire basic basic behavioral habits;
