Abstract / Description of output

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, aspects of healthcare have been increasingly delivered online, emphasising the growing importance of digital skills for managing everyday life.1 While the digital revolution in health and social care has brought advantages for many, not everyone has been able to benefit equally from these developments.2 As health systems around the world strive to improve patient outcomes through technology, we discuss some of the practical and ethical considerations for digital inclusion and ask, who might this trend be leaving behind and what can we do about it?
