May the workforce be with you: Retention and Robotics in Healthcare

Two major issues which will impact on the healthcare workforce for the future will be retention of the workforce from student to practitioner and the utilisation and engagement with new technologies. This lecture will focus on both of these critical areas for developing a workforce to meet the increasing demand on the NHS and the UK’s ageing population.

Attrition in pre-registration health students is multi-faceted and remains an area of major concern. The transition from student to practitioner in the NHS is also an area that needs addressing as we need to grow a highly skilled committed workforce that remain in the NHS.

The NHS People Plan sets out a clear priority to develop a workforce to deliver 21st century care, highlighting the importance of the use of digital technologies to transform care. Healthcare is changing at a revolutionary pace and artificial intelligence, robotics and virtual and mixed reality are increasingly becoming the norm and fundamentally changing the way we think about and deliver health and social care.

This lecture will share a vision for the future and identify how we are preparing the University of Salford’s healthcare students as future change agents to transform healthcare.
