COVID-19 and war in Ukraine are harbingers of a more destabilised world driven by climate change, rapid mass migration, food insecurity, state failures and epidemics. These events will heavily affect Europe’s health systems’ infrastructure and health workforce

On the other hand, health care professionals often lack sufficient knowledge, training, and skills to engage effectively with digital technologies. As a result, they are often stressed when dealing with these technologies. Aiming to address the challenges arising from the wide use of digital and electronic technologies in the multi-disciplinary health care environment across the EU, the DDS-MAP formed a Pan-European consortium consisting of HEIs (Medical, Nursing, Education and Digital Technology), NGOs, health authorities and health insurers across the EU.

DDS-MAP Aims to

Map the provision of available digital skills (literacy, digital transformation, cybersecurity, online communication) of the health workforce at local and European level to increase digital competency of healthcare workers.

Enable healthcare managers to better respond to current and emerging healthcare issues (cybersecurity, surge management, supply management).

Enable healthcare workers to effectively plan, deliver, monitor, and evaluate digital health care approaches and their well-being and resilience through adaptation of digital skills.

Engage with regulatory authorities and professional associations to promote micro learning and credentials accreditation for the acquisition and recognition of digital skills.

Over the next 30 months the project will produce

A first-of-its-kind survey of the digital competences for healthcare and allied professionals across the European Union.

Micro credentials approach leveraging and adapting an established framework for DDS-MAP

European skills training modules developed through a co-creation process, addressing the needs of multiple disciplines for hospital doctors, nurses, and non-clinical staff.

Assessment of Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) platform leveraging expertise within DDS-MAP
