Digital Health Champions are nursing students and members of the public working together on a journey to better understand how digital technologies can be beneficial to healthcare.
Through the project, participants can improve their own digital skills and in turn help others, such as people living with long-term conditions or people who support others with long-term conditions.
The event brings together service users, carers, students, and organisations to explore this unique model, celebrate and discuss the research findings, share personal experiences of supporting communities, and highlight the steps being taken to build the model into the curriculum. It is a great opportunity to network with others, and explore digital health globally.

Who is this event for?
This event will be of interest to those who participated in the project, or who would like to find out more about becoming a Digital Health Champion, particularly nursing students and members of the public. This may also be appropriate for health organisations, both those who have engaged before and those who may be interested in working with us.
