Draft National Nursing and Midwifery Digital Health Capabilities Framework open for public consultation


9 March 2020

The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA), on behalf of the Australian Digital Health Agency, is developing a National Nursing and Midwifery Digital Health Capabilities Framework in consultation with leading Australian nursing and midwifery organisations. This work reflects the agency’s commitment to building a digitally capable health workforce as defined in the National Digital Health Strategy.

Development of the framework is also timely as it coincides with the World Health Organization’s 2020 International Year of the Nurse and Midwife

Consultation phase:
Public consultation of the draft National Nursing and Midwifery Digital Health Capabilities Framework includes an online survey, webinars, face-to-face consultations, and the ability to provide written submissions. 

Nurses, midwives and interested stakeholders across Australia are being consulted on:

  • the specific digital health skills they need
  • what is practical and relevant for them
  • how a digital health capability framework could be used in hospitals and health services as a professional development guide in the digital world.

Have your say before the survey closes 13 March Your input is valuable as it will help enrich the framework to ensure it meets the needs of nurses and midwives.
