My project proposal centres around both developing the strategic infrastructure for multi-professional digital healthcare education and training for all levels of digital expertise, and creating scalable education and training resources for digitally-augmented healthcare.
The project will be supported by Great Ormond Street Hospital’s DRIVE initiative – which has key relationships with organisations central to the NHS’ digital strategy (Health Education England, HDRUK, NHS Digital, NHSX) and academic links and industry partnerships – as well as by the NIHR Academy, and UCL’s Knowledge Lab (part of UCL’s world-leading Institute of Education).
The proposal involves parallel work-streams (with dynamic crossover) that:
For me, the key determinant of successful digital transformation in the NHS, and for its patients, will be the development of multi-professional education and training that allows the NHS workforce to harness and realise the potential of digital healthcare technologies.
I am a Neonatal Grid trainee with a PhD in the computational modelling of neonatal imaging datasets.
I worked as the Clinical Fellow for the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics workstream of the Topol Review, and am currently performing work with Health Education England and Great Ormond Street Hospital’s DRIVE (Digital Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments) initiative to develop better training and education regarding healthcare technologies.
I am on the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, am a member of the sub-committee for the newly formed Industry Exchange Network for the NHS, and am part of the National AHSN AI Initiative Core Advisory Group.
