Information about Sunrise EMR for university and VET sector students

Training in the Sunrise EMR & PAS

Prior to starting a placement at a hospital or health service using the Sunrise system, all students will need to be trained to access patients’ electronic medical records.

The model for student training, including university and VET sector students, was developed in collaboration with ClinEdSA and South Australian universities, and is based on eLearning.

The focus for student training is ‘placement readiness’ and the level of training will enable students to commence their clinical placement at a site using the Sunrise system. Additional learning and skill consolidation will occur within the context of their scope of practice in a supervised environment.

The relevant Sunrise modules are hosted on individual education provider online learning management systems. Once completed, students will need to have their training workflows reviewed by the site where they will be placed.

To ensure a smooth transition to the workplace, it is important to identify students for placement as early as possible.

Training for students is arranged by the individual university or learning institution.
