Covid-19 accelerated the rapid deployment of digital tools across health and care services, however these tools can only deliver maximum value when effectively adopted by staff and patients. Overcoming the barriers to adoption often starts with training – providing people with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to deliver safe and high quality digitally-enabled practice.
This award celebrates training projects or programmes that aim to increase uptake and use of digital tools, and ultimately improve patient care. Whilst the focus for these is often staff, it is also important for patients, service users or carers to have access to advice and training to gain confidence in the systems on offer, so judges will also give special consideration to educational projects and programmes in these areas.
