During a severe emergency like a pandemic, it is not so important how to buy but rather what to buy immediately, assuming that the imminent danger still allows extraordinary and fast procurement procedures. And there are things you cannot do without. Deeping dive into the experience of AReSS Puglia (the Strategic Agency for Health and Social Care of Apulia region, IT), this module aims to explore four main procurement lines that can be crucial for health authorities in planning and setting up a timely and effective response to the outbreak of a health emergency.

This module explores digital transformation and change management in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and provides an introduction to evaluating digital health technologies. The module will begin with a lecture in interview format on digital transformation, with a particular focus on the Catalan region. Some of the topics covered in this interview will include: 1)The shift towards digital operations: what’s new? 2) What is change management and why is it important in the current context; 3) Guidelines and procedures for policymaking: one size fits all? 4) The importance of the cultural environment; 5) The role of citizens. A second lecture will describe how digitalisation has transformed the evaluation of medical technologies. First, we will revise a few basic aspects of health technology assessment. Then, we will discuss evidence-based evaluation of digital health products (apps, sensors, wearables, etc) and explain what are some of its specific requirements. The lecture will highlight the importance of having a formal assessment across technical, clinical, usability, and cost domains. To that end, we will review the existing landscape and gaps, and introduce some evolving responses and new approaches.

This online training will focus on mental health and specifically tackling stigma. The training will first provide an overview of mental health, followed by an outline of the complexities of mental health and stigmatisation. The training will also clarify why people can unintentionally reinforce negative stereotypes and be stigmatising, because of the language they use when discussing mental health. The subsequent section will be delivered by mental health experts and will be an opportunity to hear directly from experts by experience on the harmful effects of stigma on mental health. The concluding portion of the module will address the relevant policy interventions and implementations necessary to make such changes a reality.
