The Cumberland Institute


Everyone knows that the workforce needs to change shape and yet the debate is cast in terms of the roles, training and skill-sets that currently exist. Trying to work out what new roles should exist, what education, training and support they will require and then being assured that these roles can be deployed with existing structures at scale and work is a challenge that no other industry has faced. Other sectors have generally solved the problem through catastrophic collapse of ‘old’ structures and the introduction of the ‘new.’ For healthcare, this would be a disastrous approach and so we need to find ways to model what is needed to quality assure the result for clinical outcomes and operational efficiency.
This workshop will present expert views on the workforce challenge and provide hands-on ways to explore the available tools.
