RCN eHealth Forum and Health Education England have collaborated to develop digital skills, the initiative that will help make “every nurse a eNurse”.
They are rolling out interactive online workshops for all nursing staff across the UK, including both RCN members and non-members.
They will be able to contribute their ideas and knowledge, whilst participating in the conversation for future digital nursing.
In addition to this, nursing staff can attend one of a series of face-to-face workshops, to be held in different locations in the UK in February; Edinburgh, Cardiff, London, Leeds and Belfast.
Anne Cooper, Chief Nurse at NHS Digital, and Clever Together said, “I’m delighted to be working in partnership with the RCN on this online workshop to ask nurses what they think the future of nursing using technology looks like, what is helping them to reach that ambition and what things get in the way…We are also looking for really good examples of where we have been using technology. Nurses are often the people leading the way in introducing new innovative ways of working that improve patient care."
The RCN is leading the collaboration in partnership with Anne’s company which specialises in large-scale crowdsourcing projects.
The results of the eNurse consultations will be used to discover the challenges faced by nursing staff in adapting to digital technologies, and the opportunities available to improve patient care.
