The World Health Organisation is unequivocal:

    “We can’t care for patients properly, if we don’t invest in the health of our professionals. This means also committing to feeding their minds. A healthy workforce is essential to enabling healthy populations.”


    Leading healthcare organisations are already taking steps towards providing additional learning opportunities to
    their staff, in partnership with medical device manufactures, such as Philips.

    To be at the forefront of the latest development in healthcare, it is crucial to equip our workforce with the right knowledge and training on new technology and processes that have the power to support their work.

    As Melissa Kenig from Philips Education Services comments:

    “As we accelerate towards digital transformation, the people behind the machines can sometimes get forgotten or left behind. The best technological solutions won’t make the impact that’s hoped for it, if the people operating and using them haven’t been taught how to use them to achieve their outcomes. Research has shown that stakeholders who invest in the right mix of skills can help accelerate digital transformation while achieving a happy, motivated workforce. Learning isn’t a nice to have. It’s a mandatory for effective care.”

    Smarter and more flexible working environments are key to attracting talent.

    Other than salary, factors around collaboration, autonomy and technology are important when choosing a hospital or practice in which to work.
