Digital Futures

Using education to prepare the NHS and social care workforce to deliver the digital future.

“Using Education to Prepare the NHS and Social Care Workforce to Deliver the Digital Future” offers the opportunity for senior teams across the system from STP/ICS footprints to work together to strengthen the capacity of the NHS and social care workforce to: ‘embrace the digital future, realising the full potential of benefits for patients and their families, including citizen empowerment, improved patient-clinician/practitioner relationships and more efficient and effective clinical care’.

The programme is directly responsive to the vision, priorities and current workforce needs highlighted in the Topol Review, “Preparing the Healthcare Workforce to Deliver the Digital Future, 2019.” It will integrate the latest scientific evidence on digital technology innovation, change management, leadership, project management and project-based team learning. This breadth of content will equip delegate teams to become effective contributors to the transformational changes associated with rapid advancements in digital health care technology. Our aim is to encourage and support participants to rethink traditional ways of working to address strategic system-level issues and collaborate more effectively to deliver high quality solutions for the populations they serve.

Working in partnership with Yale University, USA, this international programme will offer a unique and comprehensive learning experience that includes experiential learning, access to vast curricular resources, interaction with top-tier academic and practitioner faculty from both the UK and US, and culmination in a certificate from a world-class university. The programme faculty have a demonstrated track record of supporting change at a system level whilst promoting the development of senior leaders with strategic responsibilities through the delivery of programmes over the past 12 years.

The aims of the programme are to expand thinking from local to global, explore and look for solutions to health and social care problems outside of the ‘local system,’ and broaden perspectives. The programme is supported by top academics who bring deep understanding for system level change. The programme will not always be comfortable; as it aims to challenge thinking and practice.
