Embedding Informatics into Clinical Education (e-ICE)
This project, managed by NHS Connecting for Health, has produced a revised version of 'Learning to Manage Health Informatics', the guidance for informatics content in the clinical curriculum. The guidance covers both pre and post graduate level education and training, and includes medical, nursing and midwifery, and the allied health professions. The revised guidance is available from the e-ICE website and an online community and information repository has been set up for clinical educators on the NHS Connecting for Health eSpace website.
For more information about the project and to participate in the online community please contact: Di Bullman, Informatics Development Manager, NHS Connecting for Health, email email@example.com or tel: 0113 397 4384.

UK Faculty of Health Informatics
Following its launch in September 2005 (as the NHS Faculty of Health Informatics) the Faculty is continuing to increase recruitment of health informatics champions to develop a national community of practice for health informatics learning and development, applied research and professional services.
Membership of the Faculty is free and gives individuals the opportunity to contribute to the development of a body of knowledge supporting healthcare modernisation through a series of themed Masterclasses and focused two-day Exchange events.
Faculty events have placed emphasis on sharing informatics knowledge and skills, through effective dissemination. They are ideal opportunities to contribute to important debates and for individuals to network at a
UK level. It is important to continue to raise awareness of the key role informatics has to play in healthcare modernisation and better patient care, and therefore helping to enhance the status of health informatics as a respected profession.
Please note that the Faculty is hosted on NHS CFH's eSpace and you will need to register for eSpace before you can access the Faculty pages.
