This is the final report of a project that aimed to encourage and support program coordinators and directors of Australian undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programs in all allied health, nursing and medical professions to address the need for ehealth education for entry-level clinical health professionals.The rationale for this project was that new initiatives in professional education, training,learning and development are required to build the capabilities that the Australian health workforce needs to work in a national ehealth system. In Australia, very few educational providers in the health professions had developed a systematic approach to teach, assess,evaluate or audit this aspect of professional education, and relevant curriculum initiatives were not widely known.Between 2010 and 2013, this project took a nationally coordinated approach to researching, workshopping and resourcing curriculum renewal, to facilitate theoretical and practical understanding of the rapidly developing field of ehealth and its implications for the education of future clinicians. It promoted the sharing of core principles and pedagogies and internationally recognised knowledge and skill domains in order to build ehealth capability across the health professions.This report begins with an introduction to ehealth and ehealth education for clinicians and an outline of the project methodology, followed by a review of the international literature on university learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of ehealth education for clinicians.
