Hi everyone,

I am keen to gauge if there is interest in the openEHR community for running a clinical modelling workshop in the rough geographical and timing proximity as the MIE 2016/HEC 2016 conference  - Munich, 28 August-2 September.

Please respond directly to me, especially with your preferred dates, and I will aggregate responses and see if it will be viable.

A typical 2 day seminar/workshop package would consist of:

Day 1 - Seminar, 9-5: Attendees can attend only this day if they choose, and which will provide an overview to openEHR and clinical modelling. Suitable for all clinicians, vendors, decision-makers and policy-makers - essentially anyone interested in clinician-led health data specifications.
At the end of the seminar attendees will:

*         Understand the benefits of a standardised clinical content approach and how this impacts on the quality of health data;

*         Have insight into how international eHealth programs have created a vibrant community of clinicians, domain experts and implementers who collaborate to develop a shared repository of clinical data specifications;

*         Understand the 'openEHR approach' to standardisation of health data & clinician engagement;

*         Be able to explain an openEHR archetype or template to others;

*         Be able to explain how archetypes, templates & terminology together are a powerful way to define health information;

*         Have seen live demonstrations of the tooling suite - Archetype Editor, Template Designer and the Clinical Knowledge Manager; and

*         Understand the principles and importance of rigorous clinical knowledge governance.

Day 2 - Hands-on Workshop, 9-5: Prerequisite is attendance at Day 1. Suitable for those who will be practically involved in archetype and template development, implementation and governance, including reviewing of archetypes. Numbers limited to 25 people.
At the end of the workshop attendees will:

*         Be able to 'think like an archetype modeller' - understand the principles of clinical requirement analysis and convert these into mind maps for collaboration

*         Participate in building archetypes and templates using the Archetype Editor and Template Designer tools installed on their laptop;

*         Have achieved a basic proficiency in the use of the openEHR modelling tools;

*         Have registered as a participant in an openEHR CKM; and

*         Have actively participated in CKM collaborative reviews.

Kind regards
