Adapting health care competencies to a formal competency model

Sitthisak, Onjira, Gilbert, Lester, Davis, Hugh C. and Gobbi, Mary (2007) Adapting health care competencies to a formal competency model At 7th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT 2007). 18 - 20 Jul 2007. 4 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Health professions education has moved away from process-based curricula to competency-based curricula. Machine readable and processable health care competencies are still embryonic, pending the emergence of appropriate standards. The IMS Reusable Definition of Competency or Educational Objective specification and the HR-XML competency standard are introduced, compared, and their problems identified in the implementation of exemplar competencies from the UK Royal College of Nursing. An improved competency model is proposed.
