The purpose of this course is to improve feedback, clinical teaching, and assessment of clinical skills.
Clinical teaching takes place in the clinical setting for health professions. Clinical teachers have the challenging and meaningful responsibility to convey the bedside art and science of medical practice. This course will provide clinicians with the tools to improve their clinical teaching and assessment practices. This course provides instruction and experience for educating members of the health professions an asynchronous way to obtain, expand, and improve their clinical teaching skills. While many courses seek to build knowledge and knowledge application, this course will extend the application to performance- based skills. These skills can be applied within their own professional context, with a variety of learners, extending across many stages. We will ask you go out and apply the skills you are learning and then come back and reflect discuss with classmates. Course Objectives

These changes will accelerate over the next few decades In this subject you will explore the impacts of climate change; why we should care about them, the science that underpins our understanding and how we can fix the problem before it’s too late.
This course introduces how the human body works and how it is more than the sum of its parts. The human body is made up of many individual parts that work together in a highly interactive and coordinated way. This course introduces the building blocks that make up the body, and how these are structured and maintained at a cellular level. We highlight the cardiovascular, hormonal and nervous systems, as critical coordination and control parts of the body. We investigate the structure of the musculoskeletal system, and how it helps us move through, and manipulate, our environment. We conclude by reviewing how the body replaces itself to create a new human being.

Explore four common diseases and body systems: how they work, how they are treated and prevented. Understanding Common Diseases is designed for everyone who cares about their health or is interested in knowing more about how their body works. Over the course of the subject, you will hear from patients with four different diseases: high blood pressure, heartburn, diabetes and the common cold. We have chosen these diseases as they all affect different body systems and occur commonly in the general public.

It provides examples of how primary health care has been instrumental in approaching this goal in selected populations and how the principles of primary health care can guide future policies and actions. Two of the most inspiring, least understood, and most often derided terms in global health discourse are “Health for All” and “Primary Health Care.”
This course is one of three related courses in the HI-FIVE training program, which has topics on population health, care coordination and interoperability, value-based care, healthcare data analytics, and patient-centered care. Each of the three courses is designed from a different perspective based on various healthcare roles.
Learn how to make healthy choices and adjustments to your lifestyle and environment to help you live a healthier, happier and longer life. Many health complaints, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or joint problems seem inescapable diseases of old-age, but originate mostly from our lifestyle. A lifestyle that is dictated much in part by our environment. The mismatch between our 'old' genes - our evolutionary heritage - and the 'modern' environment is the reason that we cannot resist the constant stimuli that seduce us to make unhealthy choices. Do's and don'ts cannot help us.
HI-FIVE (Health Informatics For Innovation, Value & Enrichment) Training is an approximately 10-hour online course designed by Columbia University in 2016, with sponsorship from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). The training is role-based and uses case scenarios.
