Digital Pioneer Fellowship project: Using digital for work planning and self-care
This project is about exploring the use of digital for work planning and to support self-care. Currently, therapies have multiple systems (EPR & Healthroster) alongside local operational standards e.g. staffing/leave rules/caseload management but no single accurate dashboard/daily temperature check to determine a daily demand and capacity.
My name is Nazia Ahmad. I’m an enthusiastic occupational therapist, currently working in a non-clinical improvement regional role. Clinically, I worked within neurology and Neurosurgery, specialising in neuro-oncology. I am a Darzi Alumna with a steady commitment to working across systems. I am passionate about reducing health inequalities and am very keen to explore wider social determinants of health. I have previously completed a Master’s in Clinical Research from St. George’s, University of London funded by the NIHR. I am keenly interested in leadership and am a firm believer in building leadership and QI capacity within our workforce. I view digital health as an enabler and a tool for empowerment for both staff and patients.
“Digital transformation is critical to improve access and equity for health and social care services and underpins sustainability.”
