This report by the Centre for Workforce Intelligence considers the implications for workforces of the ongoing drive to integrate health and social care services. Based on a review of literature and interview with care sector leaders undertaken by IPC, it identifies clear steps to support workforce integration. For example:
- Be clear about the local integration agenda, including the various routes to integration.
- Address the integrated workforce management challenge to ensure the right people with the right skills and behaviour are in place to deliver integrated services around individuals' needs, and
- Implement successful workforce change by addressing a range of operational and strategic questions by taking an inclusive approach.
