Digital Health Foundations

About this course

This course focuses on the fundamentals of digital health by exploring the key technologies, techniques and cultural dynamics that support the successful delivery of digitally-enabled models of care.

The purpose of this course is to help participants develop a strong understanding of digital health, and where and how to apply key technologies and techniques in delivering high-quality, safe, efficient, accessible and culturally appropriate service models.

This is a new course but has been adapted from digital health workshops delivered across multiple health organisations over the past 4 years. The materials have been refined through extensive co-design and real-world feedback. All our Rebbeck Academy courses are run online via Zoom. We use breakout rooms and virtual white boards to facilitate group discussions.
