Does information make
a difference to patient care?
Traditionally the focus has been on the
Management of resources:-
On page five of the new NHS IM&T strategy published in January 1999 you will find exactly the same five key principles.
All of the respondents considered the 1992 NHS IM&T strategy to be only partially fulfilled, with 25% expressing the belief that it was half-way or more to fulfilment in terms of benefits achieved.
75% thought that the strategy had gone only a small way to achieving the benefits it stated in 1992.
Respondents were also clear about their beliefs that the implementation was too technology driven and that there was a serious lack of education and training to prepare clinicians and healthcare professionals.
One of the National Initiatives was the production of a training strategy and 60% of respondents thought it was complete as a project.
A training strategy was developed by the IMG.
Not one respondent thought the IM&T training strategy had completely fulfilled its expectations, indeed 57% thought it unsuccessful.
Education and training, or rather the lack of it, was commented on more than any other subject within the survey.

We asked the two questions about content
Do you include these skills/topics under the heading of:-
It would appear that the informatics community, whilst extremely good at communicating with each other, needs to recognise that some of the key users do not access the same communication networks.
The original study found that a total of 65% of respondents wanted a Core Curriculum for IM&T.
In 1999, 93% wanted a core curriculum for Health Informatics.
Core curricula were written for pre and post registration but appear not to have been widely disseminated.
Institute of Health & Care Development (IHCD) and ENB however produced a product in November 1997 entitled “Information for Caring” and subtitled “A framework for including health informatics in programmes of learning for nurses, midwives and health visitors and other clinical professions” .
The purpose of the document was “to raise the profile of health informatics within curriculum design and development…”
