The Report


Workshop Objectives


With this workshop we seek to achieve two things:

  • Validation of the comparison of qualitative methods in health workforce planning based on information provided by partners (related to D061 User Guidelines on how to use qualitative methodologies to estimate future health workforce needs).
  • To train partners to conduct Horizon Scanning interviews with key stakeholders to enable the identification of drivers that may impact on the health workforce (related to DO62 Report on Future Skills & Competencies).


Workshop Preparation


To facilitate this WP6 have created a pre-reading document.  This document contains:

  • Information from partners who informed us that they use or have used qualitative methods in their health workforce planning
  • A paper on ‘proposed methods’ which outlines the methods proposed by CfWI to identify the drivers which may influence the skills and competences needed by the future European health workforce.
  • A glossary of terms for WP6.
