Latest Podcast - Making person-centred care digital: Nursing and Midwifery leaders discuss

Digital health systems are becoming the norm and have numerous benefits for care delivery and outcomes, including reducing hospital admissions, minimising adverse drug events, coordinating complex conditions, and enabling informed treatment decisions.

In this episode nursing and midwifery leaders discuss the impact of digital health on their professions.

Participants include Alison McMillan (Commonwealth Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer), Kellie Wilton (Senior Midwifery Advisor), Annie Butler (ANMF's Federal Secretary), Karrie Long (Victorian Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer), and Alicia Graham (Digital Health Educator with the Australian Digital Health Agency).

Key takeaways include:

  • The importance of patient-centred care and the need for nurses and midwives to play a leading role in shaping digital health initiatives.
  • Challenges including legacy policies hindering nurses and midwives working to their full scope of practice in health systems and the usability of current digital systems, which often do not meet user needs effectively.
  • Co-designing digital systems with input from nurses, midwives, and other stakeholders is crucial for ensuring usability and effectiveness.
  • The Australian Digital Health Agency and its focus on creating an inclusive, sustainable, and digitally enabled healthcare system.
