eHealth champions are nurses and others who are passionate about improving nursing practice and client care in their organization. Champions can be anyone who will be able to have organizational and/or unit/program level influence.
Why get involved?
Become an eHealth leader! Increase your understanding, acceptance and adoption of informatics in point-of-care activities; develop support strategies for colleagues in the workplace. There are two levels of eHealth Champions.
