Domain B – Leadership and Advocacy

Leadership and Advocacy

Health workers lead and collaborate, with others to promote appropriate use of digital health, contribute to improvements and embrace digital changes

As new technologies and opportunities emerge, health workers will play a critical role in promoting and leading uptake of digital health solutions across the sector. Workers will be expected to advocate for, and partner with, consumers and patients as they increasingly seek digital access to information and services. To fully leverage the benefits of digital health technologies, workers must explore new technologies and approaches and embrace the changes associated with the digital evolution of healthcare.

There are three sub-domains within Domain B, Leadership and Advocacy:

B.1 Digital Health Advocacy
Working in partnership with patients/consumers to advocate for access to information and use of digital health technologies

B.2 Workplace Leadership
Participation as an active and visible player in digital health decision making in the workplace

B.3 Leadership through Digital Change
Embracing the future of digital health through engaging with emerging technologies, accepting change, and participating in decision making
