Module - Advanced Development and Management Environments (HBI127)

HSST

Aim of this module

A key part of developing software is evaluating and choosing how software should be created and managed. In the clinical environment, it is essential to understand the methodology in making the right choice in relation to programming and maintenance to deliver software in a safe and appropriate way to support improved patient outcomes. These can be influenced by many factors such as data considerations, financial cost and time constraints.

By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to analyse, synthesise and apply their expert knowledge and understanding of advanced development and management environments. They will be able to develop and review new software, critically assessing the quality and the development process. They will be able to design and synthesise a database, including advanced features.

The Clinical Scientist in HSST will also be expected to consistently demonstrate the attitudes and behaviours necessary for the role of a CCS.
