Mike Miliard Editor of Healthcare IT News posted an item:
Should more types of health data figure into electronic health records?
On the one hand, the Institute of Medicine put out a call for doing just that on the grounds that behavioral and social data can benefit population health practices to ultimately improve the care of individual patients. For physicians who already complain that EHRs are burdensome and distract from care delivery, on the other hand, the idea of making electronic records more complex, perhaps even cluttered, will inevitably be unwelcome news. ...

In the third module of my technology enhanced learning studies I have been reading:
Henry, B., & Ueda, R. (2005). Learning model and curriculum designs for international health in nursing. Japan Journal of Nursing Science, 2(1), 17-24.
The aim of the paper is:
Nursing’s domain of inquiry for international health is unclear. A learning model to frame this specialty is unavailable. The goal of this analysis was to open debate worldwide on the nature of concepts, relationships, and analytic constructs that can serve as a foundational blueprint for international nursing curriculums. The aim was to define and operationalize international health in nursing by constructing a learning model.The results included the identification of five main concepts:

Nishino's maps aren't supposed to be geographically accurate. "It is simply the town seen through the eyes of a single individual," he says, "a trace of the way I walked through it." He uses a film camera and develops the images himself before painstakingly cutting and assembling them into a collage.

ChildFund International opens first Interim Care Center for children orphaned by Ebola
Ebola is frightening. Most information from TV, Facebook, and from our governments is poor. We want to change this by providing to you the best possible scientific information about Ebola from leading scientists from Nigeria, Africa, the Library of Alexandria and experts world wide.
We have created a cutting edge lecture on Ebola for you to teach your students, share with your faculty and distribute to your friends. The Lecture has been translated by 20 scientific experts into Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, Hebrew, Japanese, Malay, Pashtu, Russian, Spanish and Urdu. It present the best possible scientific knowledge about this disease.
We provide this to you as a “gift that is meant to be given”. Please share this with your students and faculty, and post the lecture on Facebook, tell others about it through Twitter, etc. The Library of Alexandria Lecture is free, developed by the global scientific community. Include links to this from Universities, Libraries, schools media, etc.
Let us continue to learn and share the scientific facts about Ebola.

I'm walking over ground of a gradually steepening pitch. At a certain point, I pause and start using my hands; the real mountain begins. I am climbing. Do I, as soon as my back slopes forward, return to the state of the quadruped? Almost: my body transforms; feet become hands and my two manual grips secure balance. Homo erectus, the standing man, of recent date, reverts back to the one from whom he is descended: the archaic quadrumane. This thunderbolt recollection became so black, in me, that I no longer fear to speak of the beast; I remember who we were (p.3).

HEE TEL Programme Bulletin
User needs research
Following the completion of a desk study in May to effectively scope out existing TEL platforms and resources, additional research is currently being carried out to provide further evidence that there is a real need for a fully integrated TEL hub.
A questionnaire was sent out across the programme networks on 17 October and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JCC9D2C
The survey will close on 3 November 2014. Please tweet about it too #HEETEL
All results will be triangulated with the desk study and other existing data from previous meetings and events and the results will inform the final Government Digital Services (GDS) business case.
TEL Hack Day 2015, 6 – 8 March
A TEL specific hack day is planned in 2015, aimed at developing ideas and IT solutions to support healthcare students, staff and educators.
This weekend event is planned to take place from 6 to 8 March 2015 in Leeds. More details to follow shortly.
TEL Programme Review
A review was undertaken of the TEL Programme during August 2014 and the TEL Steering Group has now agreed the projects that are being progressed in order to deliver the Programme aims. Clearly the main deliverable of the TEL Programme is the TEL hub but there are 10 additional projects that the team is committed to building on. Each of the objectives, outputs, outcomes and benefits were discussed at an all groups’ meeting on 21 October and more detail will be shared over the coming weeks.
TEL @ conferences and events this month
November will be busy month for the TEL team with presentations, workshops and stands planned at key upcoming events:
Regional news and views…
There continues to be an exciting range of TEL projects and initiatives being implemented regionally and this section of the newsletter is designed to provide a snapshot.
e-Learning Boot Camp Experience
Developers and others who support the delivery of e-Learning in the North West are benefitting from a new capability and capacity programme – the e-Learning Boot Camp Experience. Managed by the North West e-Learning Support Service, this programme is providing access to introductory and advanced skills in e-authoring, project management and quality assurance.
Sharing simulation scenarios
The North West simulation network have created a bank of evidence-based simulation scenarios to be made available across the region, as well as rolling out a quality assurance methodology to accredit individuals in the development of simulation skills, local courses using simulation techniques and centre-wide simulation.
Regional Simulation Network launched
Health Education North East (HENE) launched their Simulation Network last month, as part of the new Faculty for Patient Safety, within HENE. The aim is to bring together everyone who is interested in clinical skills, human factors and enhanced learning and education opportunities that effective simulation, research and innovation can deliver.

Design4Health2015 will be held at Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK from
Monday 13th to Thursday 16th July 2015.
Deadline for abstracts - Mon 5 Jan 2015
Design 4 Health 2015 provides an opportunity to reflect on how the disciplines of design and health might develop new ways of thinking and working, and how we might impact positively and sustainably on the social, economic and cultural factors within our communities and beyond. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners across the areas of design and health in order to develop new dialogues and offer different perspectives.
The Call for Papers with full details of the conference themes is attached but they are summarised briefly here:
Design4Health2015: Synergies of Practice
Design encompasses a wide range of methodologies of practice and of research. Papers exploring the synergies of design and health methods are encouraged.
Design has strengths around envisaging both problems and solutions to help all stakeholders explore the world of health in new and exciting ways. Papers exploring innovative methods and case studies are encouraged.
The disciplines of design and health have different ways of both doing and defining ‘measurement’. Papers exploring the differences and opportunities around this area are encouraged.

A post on a LinkedIn group I follow Healthcare Innovation by Design roused my interest -
What's the Source of the Patient-Practitioner Disconnect?
Invariably on the web one item relates to another and so with this:
Doctors Tell All—and It’s Bad (The Atlantic)
A crop of books by disillusioned physicians reveals a corrosive doctor-patient relationship at the heart of our health-care crisis.
Just the above mention of corrosive suggests a great deal about the pressures on relationships in health and social care. Is there a mechanistic failure to follow? It sounds like metal fatigue, if not in the actual relationships then the financial systems that underpin them?
Stephanie Frederick's post also invited the views of other healthcare professions, recognising this is not limited to medics. My own experience would identify the disconnect as resulting from a preoccupation with assessment.
As community mental health nurses this is what we do. Risk assessment is the critical focus. Collectively we assess, problem solve, evaluate and draw upon the resources of the community team and many other agencies then discharge the patient back to the GP general practitioner. There is little or, no time for therapeutic intervention.
You could say empathy and rapport have been reduced to gestures. This would be fine if it's technology we are gesticulating to: but it isn't.
It's a unique individual, a person trying to manage a new or recurrent problem. With them may be family members also struggling to make sense of a disruptive situation that may also be life-changing. If they have no family what then?
It isn't that I'm missing the custard creams with the coffee, it's the frustration of reading about the need for new models of care. Of course, many of these calls are for new financial, commissioning and organisational models; but other models are essential to negotiate the shift to self-care. And yes, I would advocate for Hodges' model as a candidate here.

Call for Articles for a Special Section of Semiotica, the Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies on the theme of “Social Representations, ICTs and Community Empowerment”.
This special section will provide an overview of the use of Social Representations Theory (SRT) (Moscovici, 1961), for empowering local communities, with a specific focus on the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), such as the Internet, desktop and mobile devices, radios, etc.
Interested researchers are invited to submit an abstract proposal (word file) of about 500 words via e-mail.
Abstracts should be accompanied by the following information about each of the authors:
When time permits I will try to identify some of the dimensions of inequality against Hodges' model. In the meantime:
