We need to talk about the workers: Researching the health and social care workforce: online lecture
The 2023 lecture from the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR) will take place online on Tuesday, 14 November 2023, 12.30–1.30pm. Professor Jill Manthorpe CBE from King’s College London will explore the problems of the health and social care workforce from different research perspectives and how solutions seem to rise and fall in popularity.
Themes will include the UK reliance on international recruitment, numerous recruitment initiatives, scant retention interest, and a surprising short-sightedness in preparing for workforce ageing or workforce caring responsibilities. Research interest in the workforce is growing and ideas for approaches and studies will be canvassed.
