UNIHEAL+ is a 2-year European project that aims the re-skilling of health professional towards digital health. The digitization of health care has long been on the European Agenda to modernize and improve healthcare and resilience across Member States; following the health impacts and the health care needs the global current pandemic has caused, OECD (Report 2020) has drawn some policy conclusions for health care provision pointing out that the Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated the importance of universal health education as a key element for the resilience of health systems, which can be issued successfully only through training and raising awareness for health professionals.The need for digital skills is widely acknowledged but there is limited reference to the health professionals as also the existing digital health professional curricula are inadequate – there is the need to strengthen the educational curricula of health professionals and use continuous professional development programs to provide them with useful digital skills training.
