We need to talk about caring: dealing with difficult conversations

NHS Evidence - health management - Mon, 11/07/2016 - 11:24

Independent Age - 
This report summarises research looking at how and why families avoid talking about challenges they may face in older age. It draws on an online poll of 2,066 people conducted by ComRes and a series of focus groups and interviews. The research suggests that almost two thirds of those aged 65 and over have never had a conversation with their family about key issues including preferences for end of life care, where they would like to live if they can no longer live at home, and who will care for them. The report warns that by putting off difficult conversations about ageing, families risk making rushed decisions about care, health, housing and financial matters at times of crisis.

Staffing matters; funding counts: an analysis of workforce profile and trends in the English NHS

NHS Evidence - health management - Mon, 11/07/2016 - 11:13

The Health Foundation - 
This report examines the profile and features of the NHS workforce in England, including; health labour market trends; relevant international data and comparisons from other countries; and a series of specific ‘pressure points’. The report concludes that the greatest threats to the delivery of the NHS five year forward view are funding constraints and workforce shortages. It argues that policymakers need to look at how targeted and aligned policies covering the effective use of temporary staff, retention of existing employees and international recruitment can be used to address current shortages in staffing and skills in order to buy time, while a more long-term sustainable approach is introduced.
