Here is an event taking place in Brussels which colleagues might be interested in attending:
Digital technologies are an inevitable part of the future of the European health workforce. It is crucial that health care professionals possess enough resources, skills and support to enable the digital transformation of care. As innovation and new technologies continue to revolutionise the modern medical landscape, it is ultimately the responsibility of health care professionals to adopt and apply such innovations. It will require the joint effort of many parties to help transitioning and training the future of the health care workforce to knowledgeably engage with technologies and digitalisation.EU institutions are working to facilitate this transition throughout their initiatives to build Electronic Health Records, aiming at building consistent infrastructure for data sharing across Europe, and to promote digital skills. Despite all the initiatives that the EU have embraced so far, health care education and systems might not keep pace with digital developments. Three areas of focus for digital health implementation still require coordination and best practice sharing: infrastructures, management & organisation of work and skilling.The debate will aim to discuss the following issues:
- What structural changes in health care settings can support health workers in leading the digital revolution?
- What skills do health care workers need to maximise the benefits of digital technologies?
- How EU policies can support health care workers in scaling up innovation?
