EHMA conference – Charting the path: green and digital skills for Europe’s healthcare worforce

June 7 @ 11:15 pm June 8 @ 12:30 pm

This session, organised as part of the BeWell project, is dedicated to crafting a green and digital skills strategy tailored for Europe’s healthcare workforce. With a focus on addressing existing skills gaps and strengthening competencies crucial for the future resilience of the health workforce, the BeWell project aims to equip healthcare professionals to navigate upcoming challenges and adapt to evolving societal landscapes.

The session has two main objectives. Firstly, it aims to introduce participants to the BeWell Skills Strategy and its significant role in shaping the future of Europe’s healthcare workforce. Secondly, it seeks to encourage active participation and engagement from attendees, fostering a robust public consultation process on the strategy. By amplifying the voices of healthcare professionals, academia, researchers, civil society and decision and policy-makers, the session aims to ensure that the forthcoming iteration of the strategy genuinely reflects the nuanced realities of the European health workforce landscape.

The session begins with an overview of the Skills Strategy developed by the BeWell project and its policy recommendations at local/regional, national, and European level. The session then transitions into an interactive workshop, where participants will be divided into groups, each engaging in discussions aimed at refining the Skills Strategy to better resonate with their respective contexts. Through sharing insights and perspectives, participants will contribute to enhancing the Strategy’s impact and relevance.
