Elicitation methods: Applying elicitation methods to robust workforce planning
The CfWI used expert elicitation as part of the robust workforce planning framework, used in all workforce reviews. The purpose was to provide workforce planners with an understanding of how the future might evolve for health, public health and/or social care professions. It can also be used for groups of professions. This includes simulation of future supply and demand, in terms of workforce numbers and skills. It also includes an assessment of the effectiveness of different policy options, for example, increasing the intake to training, altering working patterns, or influencing the drivers of demand. This paper explored our elicitation methods in more detail.
