Doctors working with Digital Tablet
The Centre for Health Technology are at the cutting edge of ensuring the current and future workforce are prepared to adopt and innovate digital applications within their respective fields. Digital health is moving at a rapid rate which creates gaps in the skillset of the current workforce. The speed of scale up also risks conflating the process of implementation and training development and the CHT are utilising pedagogy, implementation science, and technology to maximise engagement and development. The CHT are currently working to:
  • ensure all University of Plymouth students are exposed to important digital health skill development,
  • integrate digital health into established programmes,
  • develop short courses for industry and healthcare,
  • revolutionise postgraduate provisions,
  • design training programmes to transform the adoption of digital health in NHS trusts,
  • provide learning provisions that equip gradates to shape the field.
