Continuing Education in health informatics is sug-gested as a necessary part of achieving suitable IS in the health sector in order to address the long term needs of the health professions; the providers and those who design and maintain the ICTs. Our ap-proach is to include both healthcare workers and those working with health ICT in our educational program so that they may to learn together. The aim is to harness relevant experiences through reflection and learning both during their studies and in their future work practices.
