Accessibility and inclusion in digital health


In this free course, Accessibility and inclusion in digital health, you will consider some of the ways that people can access digital health in the UK and how they are able to take more control over their physical and mental health. However, for a number of reasons not everyone has access to digital health technology; for example, affordability, fear of using technology or personal circumstances. This is why the NHS Digital Health organisation in England and the Scottish and Welsh government have also developed initiatives to increase accessibility and to empower people to feel included in decisions about their health and wellbeing. This is explored in the context of a variety of different people from different backgrounds and for different health conditions.
