Vocational excellence hubs supporting essential skills acquisition to health professionals

Vocational excellence hubs supporting essential skills acquisition to health professionals

EUVECA presented at an event in the European Parliament which marked the launch of a report on essential skills for an effective and resilient European health workforce.

 The European Parliament’s interest group on Innovation in Health and Social Care hosted the launch event of the report ‘Essential Skills for an Effective and Resilient European Health Workforce’ produced by the European Health Policy Platform Stakeholder Network on Profiling and Training the Health Workforce of the Future and its member organisations.

EUVECA has been approached to present its objectives and ambitions as the regional vocational excellence hubs and the European Platform which the project will set up is strongly related to one of the essential skills which the above mentioned report has revealed: digital skills and AI and complementary to that, communication skills. EUVECA as an action strongly anchored in regional contexts all over Europe, designs and tests education programmes around problem-solving, digital, technology and media literacy skills, which will enable EUVECA to transfer input, valuable knowledge and lessons learnt from these areas to the Stakeholder Network. EUVECA relates to several of the recommend skills, like prioritising, investing and securing digital education, promoting eHealth and digital tools and hopes to strengthen the resilience of the health care professionals by giving them the opportunity to gain skills and competences on all levels by participating in learning activities on the regional and European Platform for Vocational Excellence.

Further synergy opportunities with the EU HPP report implementation, its member organisations and also with other projects will be pursued in the coming months and years. All this related news will be communicated on the EUVECA website and social media channels. Please follow us!
