Aims and Objectives
The Connected Health City training and education’s main aim is to equip the healthcare workforce with the digital, analytical, contextual and management/leadership skills to improve the conversation between individual professionals and groups.
The key objectives for workforce development:
- Promote understanding of digital health roles and skills to professionals and the wider public through the creation of a ‘learning health system’ Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
- Influence and contribute to the national conversation around professional standards for the health and social care informatics workforce by running professional ‘select committees’ to investigate its importance and set priorities.
- Share best practice and knowledge across CHC regions by hosting network events such as action-learning workshops
- Develop digital health skills in the current and future workforce through a co-ordinated programme of Continued Professional Development courses to compliment Masters level programmes.
- Cultivate research skills through doctoral training and joint knowledge transfer activities
- Link with schools to encourage health informatics professional sustainability in the long-term
Each Connected Health City region will also deliver activities for their local region, but with a view to its application across all regions.
