Health Information Technology in Athletic TrainingEBP Home Study Course


Event Details

While the role of HIT and healthcare informatics in assisting in fundamental tasks of evidence-based practice (e.g., searching the literature and managing knowledge) is well-recognized in athletic training, more advanced utilization of HIT and healthcare informatics is not as prominent. Despite the importance of the HIT and healthcare informatics, athletic trainers may lack the appropriate knowledge and strategies to effectively implement the use of HIT and healthcare informatics during routine clinical practice. Therefore, the purpose of this 2-hour module is to introduce the concepts associated with more advanced usage of HIT and healthcare informatics in athletic training clinical practice.

This course aims to cover the following objectives, which will be presented in four individual online modules:
1. Discuss current healthcare information technologies (HIT) and healthcare informatics initiatives within the global healthcare system and the athletic training profession
2. Describe common HIT that can be utilized to enhance patient care including the Internet, electronic health records, mobile devices, and social media platforms
3. Describe the role of HIT and healthcare informatics in facilitating evidence-based, patient-centered care, and quality improvement
Explain the data-to-wisdom continuum framework within the context of informatics and how the framework can be applied to patient care and quality improvement
4. Discuss legal (eg, patient privacy) and professional (eg, maintaining professionalism in an online environment) considerations related to the use of HIT and healthcare informatics for patient care

Please note that following the four modules, you will be asked to answer 10 knowledge questions about the content presented in the modules. Additionally, be sure to view each module in its entirety. It is recommended to take notes as you will not be permitted to return to a module once you have proceeded forward.
