A review of the use of digital technologies in health and care education

Health Education England is working with various system partners, including the Council of Deans and Universities UK, to improve digitally enabled education within health and care across England. To do this, we need to understand the current landscape and state of play.

How can I get involved?

Who is this survey for?

Anyone who is involved in the development or delivery of undergraduate and pre-registration education or is studying in health and care at this level.

For example, you might be a student, member of staff at a higher education institute, a practice education facilitator, or working in education strategy, policy or design (such as members of staff at regulatory, professional bodies and councils).

Why should I get involved?

Your insights and contributions will help us to understand the current situation and to make recommendations based on this feedback. The State of the Nation report will cover digital technologies currently in use, the digital literacy and preparedness of students and educators to access digital technologies within curricula and teaching, the specialist and technical skills needed by faculty and practice education staff.

These recommendations will be submitted by Health Education England to our health ministers for consideration.

By sharing your thoughts, you will help decision makers make informed choices which ensure that:

  • Students and staff are properly supported to deliver and receive education and training to provide digitally enabled care in the future.
  • Best practice is understood and shared across the system.
  • Future investment is effectively targeted.
  • We create opportunities for organisations and individuals to come together and share resources

Your contribution can be made anonymously, and we do not seek to ‘name and shame’ but to understand the overall picture and identify areas where more support is needed.

Our final report will be published and shared in late Spring 2023. If you would like to hear any further information or you have any questions/enquiries, please email: scwcsu.workforce@nhs.net
