Teaching

  • PMI100 Introduction to Health Informatics in Context

    This level one module introduces the key concepts and theories of health informatics. A broad approach to the basic elements of health informatics will be explored in the form of the patient journey through healthcare.

  • PMIM101 Health Informatics in Context

    In this module, students will study the skills required by the professional health informatician with an introduction to information governance, including privacy and the maintenance of confidentiality, data security, legislation, ethical considerations, and current UK and global eHealth strategies. Students will also begin to develop their academic skills in literature searching, the critical evaluation of research literature and reflective practice.

  • PMIM102 Scientific Computing and Health Care

    The module aims to raise the awareness of students about scientific computing in the field of health data science. It focuses on basic software development workflows, tools, and skills that health data scientists most often employ. Students will also learn about the professional context within which health data scientists operate. This is a core / compulsory module and worth 20 Masters level credits. Module leader is Dan Thayer

  • PMIM201 Communications and Coding

    In this module, students will learn about communication and communication systems. This will include a study of electronic health records and clinical coding systems. Academic skills are developed and enhanced by an introduction to qualitative research methods.

  • PMIM202 Health Data Modelling

    Health data scientists are expected to work with diverse data sources. Modelling data encompasses setting up database models and analysing the data using statistical models. The objective of this module is to raise the awareness of students about the various processes of data modelling and the key operations involved in the data processing of large and diverse datasets. This is a core / compulsory module and worth 20 Masters level credits. Module leader is Dr Joanne Demmler

  • PMIM301 Using Secondary Health Data

    Students will study data quality and management, secondary uses of clinical data, service improvement and clinical audit. Academic skills are developed and enhanced by an introduction to quantitative research methodologies. Students will be introduced to statistical software such as SPSS.

  • PMIM401 Systems and Technologies

    In this module, students will study the information systems & technologies used in health informatics projects and their implementation. These include: networks; the Internet; integrated communications; mobile communications; health information systems. Academic skills are further developed by studying how systematic reviews of literature are undertaken.

  • PMIM501 Knowledge Management

    In this module, students will study knowledge management in health care environments. The themes covered will include: clinical decision-making; decision support systems; workflow management; web site design. Students will study experimental research designs.

  • PMIM601 Undertaking Health Informatics Research

    In this module, students will develop their research skills by learning how to write a research proposal and prepare for the research dissertation.

  • PMIM603 Leadership in Project Management

    This module concentrates on leadership in project management, and examines contemporary project management methodologies, strategies and the skills required for effective project management. Students must have prior knowledge of Project Management techniques before commencing this specialised course, so you are advised to check with the module leader before enrolling to ensure you meet the criteria for entry.

  • PMIM701 Health Informatics Research Dissertation

    This module builds on the knowledge and skills developed in part one of the course. Students will work independently in order to critically explore and add to the evidence base for a topic of relevance to health informatics.

  • PMIM703 Project Management Dissertation

    In this module students use work based learning and experience in the construction of a work based portfolio, which will reflect on the leadership of a health informatics project.

  • PMRM00 Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care

    Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.
