Core Information Literacy Competencies in HSC Curricula
Information fluency (literacy) competencies for all HSC students in professional degree programs.
Information literacy has become an essential skill set for all health professionals, particularly due to its central role in evidence-based practice. The purpose of this document is to provide HSC programs with the basic information literacy competencies that should be included, integrated, and assessed in all HSC curricula. This document can be adapted to the needs of individual curricula. For example, individual programs can use it to identify at what points in their curriculum these competencies are or should be met or whether these competencies should be met as prerequisites.
