Why Attend

The acceleration of digital technology adoption in health and care has arguably been one of the few positives to come from the Covid-19 pandemic. After years of slow uptake, many organisations are now looking at how they can use technology to make their processes safer and more efficient.

The increased focus in this area has been demonstrated by the rapid appointment of chief nursing information officers (CNIOs) in many organisations and support from the chief nursing officer for England for every NHS provider to have one.

To achieve lasting and impactful change, it is vital that the nursing workforce is involved in every stage of the technology journey, from development to deployment, making sure no nurse is left behind.

Whether you want to learn more about the potential of new technology yourself, are seeking a solution for your team or want to inspire your peers with your own experience, the Nursing Times Digital Forum is for you.


By joining our event you’ll benefit from:

  • Guidance on the NHS Transformation Directorate’s What Good Looks Like programme
  • Case studies showcasing successful nurse-led development and deployment of new technology
  • Hearing how virtual reality is changing learners’ experiences
  • Advice and guidance on helping all nurses to be proactively involved in development and deployment of new technology
  • Examples of new strategies to support nurses’ digital development
  • Interaction with NHS and independent sector providers via a series of case studies, panels and presentations with the chance to ask questions
