Digital Practitioner – Helping to develop the digital skills of the health and care workforce


  • Client: Leeds City Council
  • Product: Digital Practitioner Delivery Model, Learning and Evidence
  • Key Features: Resources and learning for individuals, teams/professions, managers/leaders and organisations
  • Status: Pilot Phase


Through the discovery phase, we found that to develop the skills and confidence of the health and care practitioner, there were a number of practical barriers and issues that we must help people through, these included, suitable IT kit, connectivity/access, understanding related policies and staying safe online. 

We also found that a one-size fits all approach to using digital in practice is not helpful, so in this phase we aim to work collaboratively with 3 pilot teams to learn together, through using an outline Digital Practitioner model, so we can inform the wider health and social care agenda how to do this successfully.
