CPME response to the Digital Doc Survey on Challenges, Recommendations and Best PracticesComments Off on CPME response to the Digital Doc Survey on Challenges, Recommendations and Best Practices

On 9 July May 2020, the CPME Executive Committee adopted the ‘CPME response to the Digital Doc Thematic Network Survey on Challenges, Recommendations and Best Practices’ (CPME 2020/060 FINAL).

CPME believes that the digital transformation of medicine should be understood by all actors as a long-lasting disruptive process of change and innovation that will massively modify the structures, processes and cultures of the healthcare system and thereby significantly alter the roles, competencies and cooperation of doctors and other healthcare professions.

The digital transformation of medicine and the resulting implications for medical are not yet understood by a significant number of relevant stakeholders. As a result, the necessary processes have not yet been initiated in many educational institutions. Promoting a wide acquisition of digital skills requires processes at various levels of the educational institutions: strategic processes by management, interdisciplinary processes by competence centres and individual promoters, technical processes by teachers.
