Why this course?

This Masters programme provides state-of-the-art training in the latest advances in Digital Health Systems development and management. It's aimed at those who aim to become leaders in the field of Health IT, either for Health systems service delivery or for the Health & Wellness IT industry.

Graduates will gain essential skills and expertise in designing applications that are accessible and usable, and that comply with complex data governance within healthcare. You'll gain experience in managing, analysing and making use of data collected from personal devices (such as apps and wearables) and large scale health systems (such as electronic records). You'll also gain key software development and management skills that are critical for deploying health systems.

This course looking at the whole systems implementation of digital health systems is one of its kind in the UK.

This new and unique course is the first of its kind to offer technical graduates the opportunity to develop the core skills required to develop advanced health and wellness systems and technologies for improving the way we personally manage our lifestyles and how our care systems deliver better health to citizens.

You'll study

The course includes 120 credits of taught material - taken over the first two semesters - and a 60-credit digital health project that runs, typically, from May to September.

In addition to learning about the design, development and evaluation process for personal health and wellness devices and systems and larger scale hospital and community based IT systems, students will also be trained to understand and use techniques for using the data that these systems produce to support decision making and planning and delivery of better care.

Designers affect the quality of life and well-being of individuals and entire populations through the designs they create. Today, some of the most exciting design work is being carried out in the broad and diverse field of health.

OCAD University’s Master of Design (MDes) in Design for Health offers you a unique opportunity to create designed solutions to health challenges.

Nearly every aspect of health care needs design expertise. Here’s a sample:

Charting streamlined pathways for accessing treatments such as chemotherapy
Closing the gaps in hospital-based infection control
Consulting on health-promotion approaches to urban development
Enhancing patients’ and care providers’ management of chronic diseases
Expanding access to information and services across diverse communities

Problem Based Learning through Studio

The interdisciplinary Design for Health program has four main themes delivered primarily through studio-based learning with partnered projects:

Health context: Develop domain knowledge to health, healthcare delivery, communications, technology and innovation.

Research and application: Identify, design, conduct and apply qualitative, co-design, and evidence based techniques to health challenges.

Design and innovation: Create new, ethical, and sustainable solutions with health sector stakeholders, patients, and partners.

Proficiency and leadership within interdisciplinary collaborations: Be embedded in interdisciplinary teams of researchers, health-service providers and designers to develop design solutions and communicate outcomes.

Current and Future Needs in the Health Sector

Many issues are calling out for people with specialised design-for-health knowledge and skills. Some of the most urgent are:

Increases in chronic diseases
An aging population
Escalating costs and shrinking budgets
The emergence of new infections
Growing cultural diversity
Consumer demand for more involvement in care planning and delivery
A shift to multi-setting health-care delivery
The spread of digital technologies

Embedded in the Health Context

We are situated in downtown Toronto at the heart of Canada’s creative sector, and just a short walk from world-calibre hospitals and health-research institutes.

The MDes in Design for Health leverages our location in the heart of the medical sector of Toronto as well as our faculty members’ expertise and abundant collaborations and connections to offer you an unparalleled environment in which to expand your knowledge and experience.

For Designers and Health Sector Specialists

We developed the MDes in Design for Health primarily for people who already have educational and practical experience in an area of design but also for people in the health sector who are committed to design. Most students will hold an undergraduate degree in design or a related field, and some will have experience in health administration, patient advocacy, health services, or health technology.

Design for Health Scholarships and Funding

We have many scholarships and funding opportunities available to students in the Design for Health program. We awarded over $60 000 in scholarships in 2016.

One of our scholarships is the AGEWELL award which is a collaboration between OCAD U and the AGEWELL Network on the topic of aging. For this scholarship there are special application requirements. For further details, please click here.

Who is it for?

This course is suitable for qualified nurses or midwives with a commitment to prevention and health promotion and evidence-based practice in a community setting.

Applicants will want to develop their practice in the sphere of district nursing, health visiting or school nursing, as well as gain an academic qualification of BSc (Hons) Graduate Diploma or Postgraduate Diploma the last of which can lead to an MSc.

Objectives

The programme offers registered nurses and midwives an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and broaden their skills to improve health within communities. City offers the three specialist community practitioner routes in District Nursing, Health Visiting and School Nursing.

The course aims to support you to:

  • Acquire a deep and systematic understanding of the professional and technical skills and knowledge of public health policy, practice, care delivery and service development
  • Develop knowledge, skills and professional competencies
  • Critically analyse social and cultural perspectives of public health, health and disease and the influence they have on judgements and decisions for practice, practice development and service delivery
  • Promote multi-agency and multi-disciplinary working in relation to public health practice
  • Critically analyse, synthesise and apply Specialist Public Health Nursing or Primary Care Nursing knowledge, policy and practice to work in different settings
  • Develop skills and knowledge to practise autonomously and organise and appraise practice and learning
  • Achieve the competency to prescribe from the community practitioner formulary for nurse prescribers.

Accreditation

This course is recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

Students who successfully complete the programme are eligible to apply to the NMC stating that they either achieved a Specialist Practice District Nurse qualification or entry to the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing part of the register if meeting health visitor or school nurse competencies.

Placements

Practice is an integral part of the programme. In the practice setting, you will work alongside a practice teacher or practice teacher and mentor from the specific sphere of practice, while completing learning activities and a practice assessment document.

You are required to undertake 15 days additional experience in an area of, or that may be of, responsibility, even if not central to the defined area of practice. This can be anywhere in the world. Past students have visited Denmark and Scotland, for example, as well as working elsewhere in London. They have worked with food banks, specialist nurses, environmental health officers and been involved in community development projects.

For the final ten weeks of the programme, you will work consistently in practice, consolidating your learning.

During your placement, you will have at least three visits from your link lecturer (who is also your personal tutor) to support learning in practice and facilitate theory - practice development.

Academic facilities

The Clinical Skills Centre at City offers excellent facilities for you to rehearse practical caring skills prior to your practice placement. You will have access to a simulated six-bed high-dependency unit (HDU) with realistic equipment including piped oxygen, call bells, medicines and emergency equipment. In addition, medium-fidelity simulators and laboratories, including a biology laboratory, allow you to rehearse skills in preparation for practice in a range of placements, including clinics and people's homes.

The School of Health Sciences is one of the first health schools in the UK to open a Technology Enabled Care Studio - City TECS. City TECS is a specially designed studio flat at our Northampton Square campus, fully equipped with the latest telehealth and telecare technologies, providing you with the unique opportunity to learn how to use the latest and future healthcare technologies while you study.

Teaching and learning

Teaching is facilitated by qualified educators, the majority of whom are registrants from the appropriate sphere of practice.

In becoming a self-critical, lifelong, reflective learner, you will identify your learning needs and work towards meeting these.

Learning and teaching strategies will include formal lectures, seminars, student-led seminars, group projects, simulated practice, negotiated learning, e-learning, self-directed learning and practice-based activities.

Assessment strategies seek to make links to practice. The following assessment methods will be used throughout the programme:

  • Essays
  • Practice Assessment Document
  • Vivas
  • Case studies
  • Written examinations
  • Reflections on Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs)
  • Drug Calculations
  • Development of a research proposal
