Canada Health Infoway in partnership with the Association of Faculties of Medicine (AFMC), the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy (AFPC) and the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) has developed the Digital Health Faculty Associations Content & Training Solutions (FACTS) initiative. This unique program is designed to advance digital health in education by developing informatics competencies and associated resources to support clinical faculty and students in Canada.
The Digital Health FACTS program engages faculty and students from 17 Faculties of Medicine, 10 Faculties of Pharmacy and 94 Schools of Nursing to:
- Scale & Spread of Digital Health within Faculties of Medicine, Nursing & Pharmacy in Canada
- Promote interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach
- Develop practical resources for faculty and students to integrate digital health toward interprofessional, collaborative patient care
The Digital Health Faculty Associations Content & Training Solutions (FACTS) Program was a recipient of the 2017 Ted Freedman Award for Innovation in Education.
