Digital Innovation: Health and Care

Led by Shipley College, this project will help to develop the work-readiness of health and care professionals in West Yorkshire. The investment will be used to enhance specialist clinical health and social care provision and upskill the health and care workforce.

The focus will be on the evolving use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and wearable technologies that are permeating traditional clinical and care disciplines.

The project will develop the necessary skills to operate programmable and augmented reality robotics that simulate clinical diagnostics, childbirth, emergency medicine, minor surgeries and personal and geriatric care conditions.
