During 2019, the Faculty of Clinical Informatics intends to continue to encourage and develop the practice of clinical informatics to improve patient outcomes in health and social care, in line with its Mission, Vision, Values and Objectives. This is will be achieved by fulfilling a number of key milestones, including:
- Developing and publishing core competency standards for informaticians to help ensure that individuals and their employers are clear about the skills and experience required for clinical informatics roles.
- Providing guidance and support for appraisal and revalidation processes, to help ensure that informatics practice standards are maintained.
- Providing professional accreditation of clinical informatics training courses to signpost members and others to high quality training.
- Supporting clinical informaticians at every stage of their career, through organising events and special interest groups.
The Faculty of Clinical Informatics has been, and continues to be, shaped by its unique, multi-professional membership cohort who bring a wealth of combined knowledge and experience.
