28What one student had to say: "As a Clinician I had my doubts, and thought this course had little relevance to the day-to-day workings of clinical practice. I have since found this knowledge to be invaluable. I am more precise with notes recording and have been able to initiate training for staff responsible for data entry, whether they are in administration support roles or in clinical support roles. When there are data transfer projects to be initiated I now have a working knowledge of how this process takes place, and can assess the quality and standard of the work being done. The overall benefit of this ensures safe and efficient digital systems, that effectively support busy clinical practice."
