National Digital Health Workforce and Education Roadmap
During the latter part of 2019, health care professionals met to create the National Digital Health Workforce and Education Roadmap.

Nursing and Midwifery Digital Health Capability Framework
Australia's largest healthcare workforce of nurses and midwives are increasingly using digital health technologies in the delivery of safe, quality and person-centred care.

The development of the framework is the next step in creating both general and job specific resources and curricula that support the capability of the workforce.
