Take Health Informatics career tour on online tool

03 January 2013, NHS Wales Informatics Service

A new and improved version of the Health Informatics Career Framework (HICF) is now available on the internet.

The HICF, for people working in health information and technology, has been developed collaboratively between the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) and informatics colleagues in the Department of Health, and recognises the increasing importance of Health Informatics services to support efficient delivery of patient care.

This framework provides a clear route map that will help health informaticians plan their own careers, aid workforce planning and support learning and staff development.

If you register (and sign in) you can access further tools including places to bookmark items of interest, store a PDP (personal development plan) and self-assessments, and also create customised roles and carry out comparisons between roles, and groups of roles in teams.
