How SCTT supports knowledge exchange and shared learning

Part of SCTT’s role is to provide support and advice to key stakeholders with the aim of making Scotland a recognised global leader in the development of technology enabled health and social care.

Knowledge Exchange activities involve sharing lessons learned from service implementation and digital health and care projects through:

  • Organising and participating in local, national and international events. These include the annual Learning Network Event and the annual Scottish Digital Health and Care Conference and wider DHC Week.

  • Organising webinars, utilising national and international networks of digital health and care expertise, to share learning and new opportunities.
  • Topic specific workshops on practical methods for achieving digital health and care at scale.
  • Disseminating learning via events, the SCTT website and Twitter channel @SCTT_NHS24. Including: evaluations, tools and reports from service implementation and projects undertaken by SCTT and our partners working to improve services using digital health and care.

SCTT consultation and facilitation services include:

  • Developing and maintaining a national database of telehealth and telecare services and projects in Scotland which will act as a supportive sign-posting tool for those setting up new services.
  • Promotion of good practice and shared learning across Scotland via the Learning Network.
