Is your organisation fit for Digital Technology in Health, Life Sciences and Social Care?

The government skills plan includes promoting high-level technical education across health, life sciences and social care. With an ever increasing demand on patient care and monitoring, digital technology is moving at pace and the requirement for the use of this resource is paramount for the sector.

The increasing level of digital/technical skills demanded by the sector will continue to grow and therefore businesses will need to equip their workforce sufficiently in order to access, understand and participate in the digital world.

Hear from guest speakers on understanding new product and software innovations as we shift towards advances in telemedicine and digital health products.

We also want to hear from you as employers and will be asking the following questions through brief, facilitated roundtable discussions:

  • Do you feel training provision currently meet your needs?
  • What is the level of current skills support do you need?
  • What future digital technology skills requirements do you feel will be relevant to your business?
