We are thrilled to announce the establishment of the ESNO Focus Group on Nursing and the Digital Domain.

As the field of nursing rapidly evolves, it is essential to embrace the potential of digital technologies and ensure that nurses are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to
thrive in this digital era.

The ESNO Focus Group on Nursing and the Digital Domain aims to bring together experts, practitioners, educators, and policymakers from across Europe to explore the intersection of nursing and technology. By harnessing the power of digital advancements, we strive to enhance patient care, improve healthcare systems, and empower nurses in their professional roles. Key objectives of the ESNO Focus Group include:

1/ Identifying digital health trends: We will monitor and analyse emerging digital health technologies in health with trends to identify their potential impact on nursing practice and patient outcomes.
2/ Assessing digital competence: We will evaluate the current digital competence levels among nurses and develop strategies to enhance their skills in utilizing digital tools effectively.
3/ Advocating for digital literacy: We will advocate for the integration of digital literacy into nursing education and lifelong learning programs, ensuring that nurses are equipped with the necessary competencies to navigate the digital domain.
4. Promoting best practices: We will share best practices and success stories in the application of digital technologies in nursing, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange among professionals.
Influencing European policy and standards: We will actively engage with European policymakers and relevant stakeholders to shape policies and standards that promote the responsible and ethical use of digital technologies in nursing practice.

We invite nurses, nursing associations, healthcare organizations, industry representatives, and other interested parties to join the ESNO Focus Group on Nursing and the Digital Domain. Your expertise and contributions will be invaluable in shaping the future of nursing in the digital age in health.

To express your interest in participating or to learn more about the ESNO Focus Group, please contact us at Together, we can drive innovation, facilitate digital transformation, and elevate the nursing profession to new heights.

We look forward to your involvement and the positive impact we can create through this exciting initiative.

BeWell - Blueprint Alliance for Future Health Workforce Strategy on Digital And Green Skills

The BeWell strategy will prepare the health workforce for future challenges, ever-changing societal context and evolving expectations. The European-wide consortium includes employers, trade associations, trade unions, health professionals such as specialist nurses and much more.
The project contributes to the Pact for Skills initiative under the European Skills Agenda 2020 This agenda aims to empower the healthcare workforce to participate in the twin transition. The Pact will facilitate collaboration between a wide range of public and private stakeholders by setting up a large-scale skills partnership which embraces local, regional and national levels.
George Valiotis, Executive Director of EHMA, and Project Coordinator of BeWell expressed his excitement about the project: “BeWell should empower health workers to build healthier and more resilient societies. It will not only tap into the potential of investments in skills of health professionals of today, but will also prepare the next generation of health workers. This initiative could respond to Europe’s societal call for more accessible and more effective health systems. It would be crucial to ensure that patients’ experience and needs are taken into account in the design and roll-out of the curricula. Health professionals know best about their what patients’ needs, so working closely with them is a precondition to fully exploit the potential of this initiative.
Katarzyna Ptak-Bufkens, Policy Officer at DG SANTE
