  1. I will not be able to attend the ELAG meeting cause of other concurrent meetings. But I will try to provide the report on the SNOMED CT education topics for Belgium.

  2. Good morning Linda, I am afraid I have to tender my apology for this meeting. The Ministry has currently no provision for supporting a delegate to attend the ELearning group events. This might change in the future, however. My report will be submitted shortly. 

    1. Thanks very much for letting us know Aleksandar! I'm sorry you're not able to attend, but appreciate you sending an update on SNOMED activity in New Zealand. If you have any feedback on the pilot courses we have posted, please let us know. Thanks!

    2017 aim: Increase utilisation of SNOMED CT ELearning resources by the country's tertiary education providers

    The tasks:

    • Increase awareness of the SNOMED CT ELearning courses and the underpinning resources (ELearning material)
    • Communicate the quality and value of the available SNOMED CT ELearning resources
    • Inform the tertiary educators on their options to use SNOMED CT ELearning material

    Practical step towards achieving the task: Provide SNOMED CT seminars for educators in all major education centers across the country. The seminar proposal has been communicated to the Ministry where it will be considered in June 2017
