Empowered frontline leads to change in digitalisation

Empowered frontline leads to change in digitalisation

Posted on June 25, 2018

The Digital Assembly 2018 is taking place in Sofia, gathering more than 1,000 stakeholders and policymakers to debate the Digital Single Market policies and recent technological developments. The event, co-organised by the European Commission and the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, will focus on key digital priorities: strengthening cybersecurity, digital skills, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things as well as tackling disinformation.

The EFN stresses that EU digital policies need to reinforce trust, and nurses can make this happen if properly engaged in the co-design of digitalisation. Frontline nurses co-designing digital health ensure fit-for-purpose solutions.

The EFN, represented by Milka Vasileva, President of the Bulgarian Association of Health Professionals in nursing (BAHPN), and EFN Executive Committee member, is present at the event to call for involving nurses since the start of the co-design process, with specific attention to gender sensitivity. In addition, we call on the EU to put a stronger focus on implementation: it’s time to move from words to action!
