Workforce risks and opportunities – education commissioning risks summary reports

The reports published as part of the 2012 CfWI workforce risks and opportunities: education commissioning risks summary project (WRO ECRS 2012) are listed alphabetically here.

The project aims to provide robust, evidence-based assessments of workforce requirements to support decision making across the health workforce.

Each report describes the key issues facing the different professions over the next three years, and aims to support local decisions on future education and training commissioning.

The reports are being submitted to the Department of Health in several tranches.
