Summary: Technology and digitalization are influencing the way the health workforce is taught and how health services are delivered. Digital health technologies are vital to establishing efficient, well-functioning health systems; empowering patients as part of a transition to people-centred care; and ensuring that health information is made available when and where it is most needed. They can improve access to health services, improve quality of care, and enhance the efficiency of health and care systems. They can empower and engage patients, making them co-designers of care. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted an urgent need for effective digital tools and an unprecedented acceleration in the implementation eHealth services, including telemedicine consultation and digital contact tracing, in countries across the WHO European Region. It has also accelerated the trend towards digital education and training of health and care professionals. These trends are set to continue, and this session will examine how we can support effective digital education for digital health over the next decade.
