Workforce Innovation, Development and Education Theme
This research understands that all health and social care is underpinned by the quality of its workforce
This theme focuses specifically on the quality of the healthcare workforce and is cross-departmental within the School of Health and Social Care.
All health and social care is underpinned by the quality of its workforce and there is an on-going need to identify and develop flexible ways of responding to dynamic and ever changing policy and care environments.
Embedded within one of the largest providers of health and social care education in London, this research theme is about developing the research base to support innovation in health and social care roles and the ways we deliver education to the health and social care workforce at all levels, from pre- and post-registration to leadership and organisational development. It is fundamentally important that any changes in how care staff are educated or deployed is based on the highest quality research evidence.
Aims are to:
- undertake high quality research that can inform workforce innovation through role development and evaluation
- enhance development of new approaches to workforce education and delivery
- work collaboratively with provider organisations to facilitate co-production
