Right Decision Service Course

DHI-NHS GGC-NHS Lanarkshire course on Coding-Free Creation of Mobile Apps and Websites using Right Decision Service tools to provide a Once for Scotland, quality assured approach

Course Overview

This first-time course is being offered as a virtual learning experience, by the Digital Health and Care Innovation Centre, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Library Network and NHS Lanarkshire library service.

It will:

  • Qualify you to use the Right Decision Service (RDS) Builder. This ‘once for Scotland’ toolset provides a consistent, standardised approach to creating quality assured informational mobile apps and websites. It enables sharing and re-use of content across Boards.
  • Link you into a network of expert users of RDS tools.
  • Equip you with the skills to deliver guidelines, pathways, patient information
    and other resources as mobile apps and websites to aid decision-making.

This course is especially timely and important just now:

It has been developed to help drive through on the need for rapid, easy access to guidance
and evidence-based information to support:

  • COVID resilience
  • staff working under pressure in managing winter flu and a potential COVID second wave
  • managing backlogs as services remobilise
  • new digital ways of working in health and social care

The course is aimed at health and social care professionals planning to deliver digital information resources for practitioners or patients in over the next 12 months.

Course participants are likely to be health and social care staff with a key role in delivering guidelines, pathways, or other information resources to support frontline practice, patients and carers – e.g. staff in libraries, information management, clinical governance, patient information.
