HEALTH INFORMATION PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE B
Credit points: 15
In this subject students undertake theoretical studies at the University, and a three-week (equivalent) supervised, professional practice placement in the Health Information Service of an allocated, regional healthcare facility. Students achieve practice competencies and reinforce professional discipline knowledge. Students undertake key functions on placement to gain understanding of the management, informatics, data analysis and clinical classificatory roles of hospital health information managers. Prior to placement, students are introduced to health information management, health information science, and health informatics via classroom teaching and extensive readings. Regular contact between students and La Trobe University Academic Supervisors is maintained during the placement via the University's Learning Management System, telephone, on-site visits, and email communications.
