Digital NMAHP - Policy Lab

We’re delighted to announce that we will be running a special, one-off ‘Policy Lab’ at our Digital Health and Care conference this year that is specifically tailored for NMAHPs with an interest in improving their digital skills.

Our ‘Digital NMAHP’ Policy Lab has been co-designed with Dr Lesley Holdsworth and Mark Fleming, Clinical Leads for Digital Health and Care at the Scottish Government. 

Designed for those with an interest in digital innovations for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals, Mark and Lesley will lead this workshop to enable you to better understand the role of digital for NMAHPs and will give you the tools to initiate change in your organisation.

The two-hour structured workshop will give you the chance to share ideas, innovative practice and common challenges with your colleagues from across Scotland and you’ll also have the opportunity to spend time with one of our vendors who can advise you on how you can use the latest technology to make improvements at work.
