Workshop Info

Each workshop will begin with a presentation of the project objectives and an orientation session on ICT Competency Profiles. Under the guidance of the workshop facilitators, participants will work in small groups, reflect on and write competency profiles with the input of like minded people working in the industry. Participants can bring their own laptop.



In 2009, ICTC conducted a research studywith a collaborative effort involving COACH, CHIMA, ITAC Health and Canada Health Infoway. The findings of this study determined that Canada will experience both a labour and skills shortage of eHealth workers over the next five years (2009 to 2014), and identified the need for a national initiative that will monitor the implications of electronic health information systems on human resources. Based on the findings of the research, ICTC conceptualized – eHealth Competency Profiles, to enable the eHealth industry to find solutions for their potential challenges with human resources.
