The following modifications to healthcare lom were proposed April 16, 2014.

1 Change the healthcare lom Resource type vocabulary to the one specified at Proposed Vocabulary for learningResourceType

2 Add a references element to healthcareEducation. This references element would allow one or more reference elements within it. The namespace would be used to infer the nature of the reference.

 

Example:

  <references> 
      <reference> 
         <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://www.example.org/performanceguide2013.pdf"/> 
         <dcterms:format>application/pdf</dcterms:format> 
      </reference> 
      <reference> 
         <rdf:description about="http://www.example.org/milestone/IM_performanceframework.xml#sb04"/> 
         <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://ns.medbiq.org/performanceframework/v1/"/> 
      </reference> 
   </references> 

3. Add a competency element to healthcareEducation. The competency element would contain 2 references: one to the competency object and one to the relevant competency framework. the competency element would be repeatable to allow activities/content to reference more than one competency.

Example:

   <competency> 

      <reference> 

         <rdf:description about="http://www.example.org/milestone/SBP4.xml"/> 

         <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://ns.medbiq.org/competencyobject/v1/"/> 

      </reference> 

      <reference> 

         <rdf:description about="http://www.example.org/im_milestones.xml"/> 

         <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://ns.medbiq.org/competencyframework/v1/"/> 

         <dcterms:format>application/xml</dcterms:format> 

      </reference> 

   </competency>
