Skip to 0 minutes and 5 seconds What do we mean by artificial intelligence? How will artificial intelligence transform healthcare? Can artificial intelligence give the gift of time back to health care professionals to focus on caring for patients and less time on mundane and repetitive administrative tasks? Is artificial intelligence a replacement or a colleague? These are just some of the questions you’ll be encouraged to explore in this course. The University of Manchester and Health Education England have come together to deliver a MOOC on artificial intelligence. The Topol Review published in February 2019, outlined that within 20 years, 90% of all jobs in the National Health Service will require some elements of digital skills. But where are we now?
Skip to 0 minutes and 54 seconds What do we need to support education and training in healthcare? We need a workforce that is able to take an active role in the development of AI in healthcare that can critically appraise and interpret the growth and impact of AI and robotic technologies. At Health Education England, our vision is to support digital transformation. And to have access to the right knowledge and evidence at the right time in the right place. And to enable high quality decision making.
Skip to 1 minute and 23 seconds At The University of Manchester, we are working with local NHS Trusts and national partners to understand how to best support the educational needs for the digital transformation of healthcare. This course will bring artificial intelligence to life by providing real world case studies, including exemplars from local health care partners. Here at The Christie We recognise the strategic importance of artificial intelligence to our future development. We are building academic collaborations and capacity to help us transform services and improve the patient experience. We will introduce you to artificial intelligence and machine learning. And look at what is motivating artificial intelligence in healthcare. In week three, we’ll be looking at the importance of the data in realising the potential of artificial intelligence.
Skip to 2 minutes and 12 seconds Week four will focus on some real examples where artificial intelligence has been embedded in the healthcare sector to highlight the roles, teams, and ethical requirements needed to make it all work in practice. Finally, in week five, you’ll have the opportunity to apply your knowledge of artificial intelligence and machine learning using a real world scenario. We will also hear how health care professionals have embarked on developing their own digital skills to transform how they work. We hope you enjoy the course, can contribute to the discussions on artificial intelligence, get some practical tools and guidance to support your own development, and be truly part of the digital transformation of healthcare.
