Introduction to the HELINA Education Working Group

Welcome to the new website for the HELINA Education Working Group. This site is currently under development. Please remember to come back later; bookmark this page.

This new Working Group was launched at the 9th HELINA conference in Ghana, and confirmed as an official Working Group under the leadership of Professor Graham Wright at the meeting of the HELINA Board on Sunday 8 March, 2015.

Aim: To foster the aims, objectives and policies of HELINA by providing a platform for the development of initiatives to support the membership of HELINA in relationship to Health Informatics Education, Training and Research.

The format of the work will be through worksets, which will consist of members who have volunteered to give their time and expertise in specific planned activity on behalf of HELINA.

Communications and discussions

As a way of interacting with the greater community, we have set up a group on Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/groups/HELINA-Education-Working-Group-8274552/about  We invite you to join. More opportunities to interact with the WG will be added.
