RCSLT are seeking input from members to help us identify priority areas within digital health and technology for our profession over the coming five years.

About the project

The purpose of this project is to identify the priorities within digital health and technology for the RCSLT to focus on over the coming five years. We are using ‘digital health and technology’ as an umbrella term to describe the use of digital and technology in the delivery of speech and language therapy services, such as using apps and electronic patient records.

We are currently working on some areas of focus including updating our telehealth guidance and reviewing clinical terminology and how this can be recorded using SNOMED clinical terms.

We are interested in exploring with members what our next areas of focus should be and where support and resources are needed in relation to digital health and technology.

Aims of the project

The main aim of this project is to gain consensus on the digital health and technology priorities for the profession over the coming five years.

These agreed priorities will help RCSLT support the profession in areas related to digital health and technology by shaping our future projects.

Get involved

We want to identify the priority areas for the profession in collaboration with our members. We are keen to hear from students, NQPs, and registered SLTs (NHS and independent) from across the UK, including those with and without expertise in digital health and technology.

To facilitate this, we are holding a series of focus groups open to all members with an interest in shaping the digital health and technology priorities for the profession during August and September. All our focus groups are now fully booked. 

If you are interested in any future focus groups we may organise or in being involved in the next phase of the project, please express your interest via Survey Monkey or contact nikki.gratton@rcslt.org.
