Be ready to contribute to EHR development in your organisation and feel confident in using SNOMED CT as the tools to represent clinical information locally and around the world.

Is this course for me?

You might be a nurse, doctor, administrator, health information manager or IT professional – if you are involved in determining codes and screens used to collect and represent data or retrieve data in your organisation – or would like to be – this is the starting course for you.

If you are developing clinical decision support systems you need to understand how the code system works and how to specify information properly to support retrieval.  This course starts the understanding of this journey.


None though a good understanding of English and basics of medical sciences will be of assistance.
