The supply model, designed using the stock-and-flow approach, resulted in three possible scenarios depending on the changes in the education commissioning.

The work related to demand in Occupation Therapy resulted in four models which represent very simplified real situation, however enable to estimate a the gap between the demand and supply. The analysis of predictions for the demand and supply has indicated that at the existing level of education commissioning growing demand for Occupational Therapy services could not be fully satisfied. The final part of the report suggests possible lines of action in order to overcome the gap between the supply and demand as proposals for further discussion.

Abstract

The current project is devoted to building of a supply and demand model spanning health and social care using Occupational Therapists as an exemplar. The methodology used for modelling is based on the review of relevant academic papers, meeting with the stakeholders and existing practice of the Centre for Workforce Intelligence, the project’s sponsor. The supply model, designed using the stock-and-flow approach, resulted in three possible scenarios depending on the changes in the education commissioning. The demand modelling appeared to be most challenging part of the project since there is no uniform model which can be applied to all the specialities and it is not clear what can be taken as current demand. The work related to demand in Occupation Therapy resulted in four models which represent very simplified real situation, however enable to estimate a the gap between the demand and supply. The analysis of predictions for the demand and supply has indicated that at the existing level of education commissioning growing demand for Occupational Therapy services could not be fully satisfied. The final part of the report suggests possible lines of action in order to overcome the gap between the supply and demand as proposals for further discussion.
