Those who teach Health Science students and professionals have the power to directly and positively affect the quality and outcomes of patient care.


From e-learning to m-learning, simulation and handheld devices, technology is making it possible to stay ahead of the latest developments while at university, on placement or in the workplace.


Innovation, Simulation and the Evolution of Technology-Enhanced Learning is the HEA’s first annual conference dedicated solely to enhancing learning and teaching in the Health Sciences.
