In the United Kingdom and across the world\, the he alth and social care sector is one of the most rapidly changing and high-p rofile industries in society. Policy changes alongside financial challenge s are putting greater demands on healthcare professionals in terms of know ledge\, skills and qualifications. \;The changing focus of the health and care sector onto patient-centered care\, greater choice and control fo r service users\, and awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles ha ve increased the demand for well-trained and multi-skilled people in a wid e range of rewarding roles. In particular\, knowledge of and skills in inf ormatics are becoming crucial as technology becomes embedded in the infras tructure of healthcare systems in the UK and worldwide. In information ter ms\, nurses and midwives are the professional groups who have the most int eraction with patients\, their relatives and friends. \; This places n urses and midwives in a unique role amongst clinicians as the vital elemen t link in the information infrastructure within health care. This presenta tion will dive into two Health Informatics programs in the United Kingdom& #8212\;one in England and the other in Scotland—\;that have sought to better prepare the current and incoming workforce for these national and global challenges.
