Following the recent release of the national digital health skills and training plan, Australia’s largest healthcare workforce of more than 400,000 nurses and midwives can now assess their digital health knowledge and skills against a new professional development framework.

Developed by nurses and midwives, the National Nursing and Midwifery Digital Health Capability Framework outlines the core digital health skills and knowledge required for professional practice in the digital era covering patient care, leadership, advocacy, education and research.

The framework was a collaboration by the Australian Digital Health Agency and the Australasian Institute of Digital Health, in association with:

  • The Australian College of Nursing
  • Australian College of Midwives
  • Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation
  • Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association
  • Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council
  • Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia
  • Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives
  • Digital Health Cooperative Research Centre
  • The Queensland Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer
  • Consumer and international representatives
