Democratising medical education: breaking down the barriers to learning
With the advent of digital pathology, there are unique opportunities to support future training models and multidisciplinary learning; and to do so in a way that addresses some of the current problems and future workforce challenges.
The Topol Review has highlighted the need to adapt to developing technology, and a range of workforce reviews have emphasised the need to provide increasing flexibility during training pathways. These requirements exist against the background of an urgent need to support development of the critically important workforce in pathology.
My project will develop a digital platform to improve and transform learning for this workforce.
What will help to make digital transformation a reality in the NHS?
The most critical element of making digital transformation succeed within the NHS is robust strategic oversight. Strong approaches to empowering front-line staff, effective leadership and consideration towards sustainability will lead to the long-term adoption and successful implementation of digital transformation.
