4cFoundation course update and feedback

Since our last meeting, we have started the development of the new version of the SNOMED CT Foundation course.
At this meeting, we will present the plans for this new course, and invite you to provide feedback on the material.

  • Agreement that the new course and format looks better than the current course.
    Volunteers were identified for the review of Module A - a message will be sent out at the end of November.
  • Discussion about students who have taken the existing foundation and what level of access they will have to the new course. For sure they can take the new course, but will they be enrolled as an alumni? (TBD)
  • Question about if the Spanish version and any other translated versions will be translated in the new style of course. It was advised that this is not planned at present and so the Foundation Course will remain the same for the Spanish version.
  • Comment about the importance of having access to a Glossary and if this could be linked in the beginning of the course as it would be useful to learners to know where this is at the start.
