The DHI Rural Centre of Excellence project in Moray is supporting the delivery of additional educational opportunities, courses, and skills provision – both for people interested in a career in digital health and care and for current and future frontline health and care staff in need of understanding digital ways of working. We also want to raise awareness about the types of jobs, career opportunities, and skills requirements associated with digital health and care.
Digital technology is transforming the health and care sector. This will affect the way health and social care is delivered in Moray and will have an impact on the skills and capabilities required by the workforce.
The event is free to attend, and you can expect to:
- Learn more about digital health and care developments in Moray – and broader Scotland-wide challenges and opportunities.
- Hear from local and national employers about the digital skills and competencies that health and care employers need.
- Learn how digital technology can support people with their health and wellbeing needs.
- Discover more about DHI’s current projects, and the skills-related research we have been carrying out over the last few years.
- Hear an update on new online courses supporting the adult social care workforce in Moray.
- Share best practices and understand how digital health & care stakeholders can learn from one another, work together and partner with local and national agencies.
