Competencies and Course Map

HLA Competencies 2018

HLA aims to help health library staff to identify courses and learning programs that will contribute to their professional development, and if desired to gain recognition as a Certified Professional (Health).  The Health Specialisation Skills Audit will help you identify gaps in your knowledge and provide guidance for choosing your most appropriate continuing professional development activities. The Competencies Review project was undertaken in 2018 by Ann Ritchie, and reported at the RAILS Conference (Melbourne, 28th November, 2018)

View Competencies Review and Comparison Poster.

Health librarianship courses and PD mapped to HLA Competency Areas

The Competency Mapping work has produced a list of approximately 110 health-related courses, events and programs offered in 2020 that are relevant to health librarians and technicians in Australia. The courses are also mapped to HLA's eight competency areas.

The Courses List is available here.

We welcome your feedback on the list, and suggestions of new items to add. Please send these to BuntingJ@ramsayhealth.com.au.
