GCU supports Scottish Government's telehealthcare agenda

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) will join telehealthcare experts from the Scottish Government and the Scottish Centre for Telehealth at an event this week to support the launch of its unique MSc in Telehealthcare.

The Supporting Person-Centred Care programme features a number of speakers discussing the development of ehealth and telehealthcare capacity and capability in nurses, midwives and allied health professionals.

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is responding to the developing world of digital healthcare through actively embedding telehealthcare within the undergraduate curricula across practice fields, developing a research portfolio commensurate with national strategy, and launching a new, unique MSc in Telehealthcare.

The MSc Telehealthcare programme is designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of people working in a diversity of disciplines and settings. It offers students the opportunity to extend their knowledge, skills and understanding of e-health and telehealthcare within their own area of practice. The programme will provide students with a research-based understanding of telehealthcare as a global phenomenon with the potential to transform the delivery of health and social care to meet the socio-demographic challenges of the 21st Century.

The programme is highly innovative and offers opportunities to critically examine emerging theories exploring the implementation, embedding and integration of new technologies and practices. It will also provide the advanced knowledge and leadership skills essential to facilitating culture change and service improvements.
