 Preparing health care professionals to the ongoing digitalisation of care: Innovation readiness, digital leadership and literacy

#EUHPP #EUworkforce4care

Wednesday 13 May 2020, 11:00 – 12:00



Every year, the European Commission’s Health Policy Platform hosts three Thematic Networks led by health stakeholders. These temporary networks are set up to produce a Joint Statement within a year’s time in a policy area of common interest. Jointly with EHMA, Health First Europe is currently coordinating the thematic network dedicated to “Profiling and training the health care workers of the future”. The goal of our thematic network is to support the European Commission and its Members States in profiling the healthcare workers’ needs for the future of care, identifying and improving their core competencies and pointing out their critical role in the debate about health system reforms, digitalisation and new models of care.

Do not miss the opportunity to participate in our debate online, via WebEx. 

With a focus on:

Case studies and best practices to improve organizational and workforce digital readiness and obtain insights for a Joint Statement

With key remarks from:

  • European Commission – DG SANTE
  • David Farrell – Health Education England
  • Trine Ungermann Fredskild – Digital & Innovation Skills Helix in Health (DISH) project

The floor will be open for participants to interact, discuss the revisions and provide comments on the presentation and initial results.
