Update: It’s announced! See the announcement blog post.
I’m thrilled to announce that the University of Minnesota School of Nursing has created an online six module Continuing Education course, Patient Engagement in Health IT, based on the book Let Patients Help. You can sign up to be notified by them when more information is available.
This is a commercial course specifically designed for nurses, but it’s open to purchase by anyone.
As the more information sign-up page says:
This interprofessional course prepares you to implement strategies to engage patients in use of health information technology for personal health information management. The focus is on identifying opportunities to engage patients, identifying barriers and resources, and creating a plan for your organization.
We anticipate the course will be ready for registration about January 1, 2014. Please provide your contact information and we will email you further details in the near future. …
The price will be announced soon – not cheap-cheap but nowhere near the cost of some courses.:-) That’s because we hope it will be used far and wide.
I haven’t seen the finished course yet, but I can’t wait! Thanks to the visionary people at the U of M School of Nursing for their industrious work in making this happen.
