Learning on the go with APNA online learning
Digital Health Nurse Transformers
APNA identified that an increase in knowledge of digital health policy, services and tools would be beneficial to increasing workforce efficiency and patient outcomes. We sought to learn more about utilising My Health Record, electronic prescriptions and telehealth services routinely within primary health care. APNA recruited nurses with an interest in digital health technologies, to educate and transform the practice of their peers and other health care professionals. We call these nurses, Nurse Transformers!
APNA engaged Nurse Transformers to become advocates and enablers; to educate and empower other nurses and health professionals to increase confidence in using digital health technologies in routine practice.
APNA partnered with the Australian Digital Health Agency to transform how we use digital health in practice. Together we can ensure digital platforms like My Health Record are utilised to their full extent.
Here's a downloadable overview of the Nurse Transformers program - From Idea to Action!
