Nurses asked to contribute to workforce study

  • Comment

Nurses are being asked to contribute to one of the largest nursing workforce studies ever undertaken.

The RN4CAST study, carried out by the National Nursing Research Unit at King’s College London, is exploring the relationship between nurse staffing, organisation of care and the outcomes for both nurses and patients.

The unit is appealing to nurses in participating trusts to take up the opportunity to develop improved workforce planning that considers the quality as well as the quantity of care.

It is also asking directors of nursing and chief executives to volunteer detailed staffing information on general medical and surgical wards, as well as other staffing and organisational information, to help build up the best national picture possible.

Nurses will be told by their trusts if they are eligible to take part.
