The Topol Review sets out the importance of preparing the workforce for the digital future and with existing and predicted pressures on the NHS, there is recognition that the existing workforce will need to change to meet demands. As a response WMG, University of Warwick have developed a new BSc (Hons) Digital Healthcare Science programme. The course teaches students how to promote health and wellbeing through individualised patient-empowerment solutions and behavioural change, using leading-edge science and technology to contribute to improving health services for individual users.
With four fusion sciences – behavioural science; healthcare and physiological sciences; science of digital healthcare; science of shared clinical decision-making – interwoven throughout the programme, underpinned by academic and professional development, the course provides a breadth of scientific training.
