As healthcare and university education in the area become increasingly digital, there is a need to define what digital competence means, how it can change over time and what digital skills employees need in the future. With this as a basis, a model will be developed that strengthens the digital competence. Furthermore, an organization to continuously develop the employees' digital skills will be developed in consultation with Region Norrbotten.
Luleå University of Technology's part of the project focuses on the needs of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, health counselors, nurses and x-ray nurses. The overall goal of the project is to raise teachers' digital skills to educate future healthcare professionals.
The project is funded by the European Social Fund.
