Creating Understandings

The major knowledge content areas in this theme are:

  • Identifying the best solutions in any given situation based on best evidence and practical wisdom.
  • Building on foundational knowledge and translating this to different situations.
  • Understanding professional boundaries and responsibilities.

The theme Creating Understandings reinforces the importance of professional practice context, connections, boundaries and responsibilities when considering what it means to be digitally literate in a healthcare context. This theme reflects three of Belshaw’s elements: Cultural, Critical and Communicative. Belshaw suggested the Cultural element is best achieved through immersion within cultural norms, expectations and understandings and is a key consideration for planning learning.
