Medical Sciences: E-Health and Digital Solutions
Course · 7.5 credits
The course is compulsory in the Master's (120 credits) programme in medical science MAMMV and is given during semester 2. The course is elective in the Master's (120 credits) programme in Medical Science, MAMEV.
The course brings up different definitions and models for e-health and how digital tools can be used to plan, carry out and evaluate e-health interventions on individual, group and population levels. The course also includes existing and potential fields of use for e-health and digital tools and the planning of an e-health intervention in one's own main field of study. The course also includes ethical aspects and challenges that arise when interventions based on digital tools are implemented. Relevant legislation is also included.
The course is implemented both through web-based learning activities (more than 50%) and learning activities requiring attendance at the course location. The implementation of the course is based on the student's active search for knowledge, problem-solving, reflection and critical analysis. The study methods consist of independent study, group work, seminars and lectures. Activities requiring compulsory attendance are indicated in the course schedule.
