The ongoing workforce shortage, and post-pandemic staff burnout risk, means that supporting the workforce and wellbeing of individuals has never been more important. Finding innovative digital means to maximise the capacity of each individual, and enable them to work more flexibly, is paramount to meeting the mounting system demand pressures. However, equally important is ensuring staff feel they are working in rewarding jobs, and being supported to succeed, so digital tools that enable seamless onboarding, training or that “just work like they should” are also in significant demand.
This award will recognise projects that are supporting both clinicians and the wider workforce with digital solutions and new ways of working to make best possible use of their skills, time and experience, improving job satisfaction and increasing productivity. Particular interest will be given to solutions and initiatives co-produced directly with staff.
