A European wide survey on the EDUCTRA (Education and Training in Health Informatics) Concerted Action, was commenced in 1992 under the auspices of the AIM (Advanced Informatics in Medicine in Europe) programme.
This book consists of four parts. The first chapter reproduces the original EC Recommendation and outlines the concerted European efforts in education and training in health telematics made by the European Commission, DG XIII Health Telematics office. The second part provides the general guidelines for European curricula in health informatics as they were developed and elaborated by the members of the EDUCTRA Concerned Action (1992-1994). The third part of this volume entails the detailed descriptions and applications of curricula in health informatics in European states. The fourth part consists of a glossary of terms and acronyms used in current research and practice of health informatics. The work provides a comprehensive overview of the current needs in health informatics in Europe but also the necessary guidelines, materials, tools and applications for improving education and training within the near future. Readers: medicine and health care professionals, administrators, health professionals, teachers and trainers.
