Nursing and midwifery reports published – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – June 2013

“We have today published a series of reports and summaries on the future shape of the nursing and midwifery workforces up to 2016, and horizon scanning reports looking ahead 20 years.

The projections shown in these reports represent unconstrained demand based on ‘what if’ assumptions in the model. They provide a range of possible scenarios which need to be considered alongside Health Education England local education and training board (LETB) investment plans and other emerging evidence to refine the assumptions and produce a clearer picture of likely future supply and demand.

The publications are the culmination of a project commissioned by the Department of Health in 2012 to support the development of policy on the nursing and midwifery contribution to healthcare. They provide guidance to the health education system through Health Education England (HEE) and LETBs as they develop their workforce and education commissioning plans.”

RM+RM = better midwifery care – National Nursing Research Unit – May 2011

RM+RM = better midwifery care – National Nursing Research Unit – May 2011

“What do we know about associations between registered midwife staffing levels and better care for women?
 
Growing research evidence suggests that there is a strong link between nurse staffing and patient outcomes in the acute sector. However, there is limited empirical evidence on the relationship between maternity staffing, maternity workforce characteristics and birth outcomes. Such evidence is much needed, given current policies aimed at improving maternity care. In this Policy+ we draw on work undertaken by the National Nursing Research Unit that sought to assess the feasibility of using routinely available data to measure the impact that maternity staffing has on birth outcomes in maternity services at trust level in England.”
