Digital health learning
Digital Health for Boards is an online training course to educate senior Board members and improve digital health awareness amongst executives. The content aims to provide directors of health organisations with an understanding of opportunities and challenges, governance frameworks, tools to assess their organisation’s risk profile and perform digital health checks.
This course will be launched in the coming months. To be the first to hear about it, register your interest by completing this EOI.
The Institute is collaborating with nursing and midwifery peak bodies, supported by the Australian Digital Health Agency, to build a capability framework for digital health. Attend an in-person event and take part in the national survey before 13 March.
