Workforce Transformation

Evidence Briefs

Produced by Health Education England's (HEE) Knowledge Management team, Evidence Briefs provide an overview of evidence from published reports, peer-reviewed journals, case studies, and much more. They cover key broad topics related to workforce and education in the NHS. They provide evidence-based background and context, encourage the use of available evidence throughout a piece of work, and prompt further discussion.

The complete list of briefs are available to download below, with more being added on a regular basis.

 

Developing portfolio roles for GPs and sharing the lessons

Devon Doctors Ltd. provides the Integrated Urgent Care Service (IUCS) for Devon and Somerset which comprises NHS 111, the clinical assessment service and the out-of-hours GP service.

An innovative approach to bedside handovers

Throughout 2018 the wards at Pennine Acute NHS Trust have been encouraged to adopt the process of “Bedside handovers”. Pearce (2018) describes this as communication at the bedside, giving patients a chance to ask questions and be heard.  Adopting this process has proved challenging and staff have experienced uncertainties around sharing of sensitive information, protecting privacy, how to involve patients and ultimately how to use it effectively to improve staff and patient experience.
