On Monday 29th November 2021, Susanne Krotsetis (Nursing development and nursing science at the University Medical Centre Schleswig-Holstein, UKSH) presented the first results of the Erasmus+ DISH project and its underlying concepts to the directorate of nursing, nursing management and trainee managers at the Campus Lübeck.
The DISH partner UKSH, one of the largest medical care centers in Europe, serves to ensure maximum medical care in the northernmost federal state of Germany and guarantees medical-technical assistance at the highest level. In addition, the University Medical Center is the largest employer and training provider in Schleswig-Holstein region, thus integrating strategic personnel development and corporate health management.
The nursing management is and will be significantly involved when introducing and implementing sustainable digital innovative solutions for healthcare professionals and end users. Representatives of the healthcare providers are an important target group for the adoption of the DISH concepts. The promotion of multidisciplinary collaboration and change management can deeply benefit from the use of the DISH concepts when introducing digital innovations into the clinical workflow.
Menzel, one of the management trainees who attended the DISH presentation, stated: „Putting digital concepts into practice, especially with such different attitudes and skills among caregivers, is often a real problem. Training in theory and practice is not always appropriately developed for the target group. Here, the DISH concepts offer a proven opportunity to jointly meet the future challenges of introducing digital solutions in the healthcare sector. “
