Skill mix and new roles in Emergency and Urgent care: what is the evidence?

Skill mix and new roles in Emergency and Urgent care: what is the evidence?
Skill mix and new roles in Emergency and Urgent care: what is the evidence?
Economic constraints and increasing demand for health care have led to the development of a range of new health care practitioner roles in both emergency and urgent care settings. A core aim of many of these new roles is cost reduction by labour substitution, but they are also introduced to improve care quality.
This briefing report summarises the evidence about the impact of introducing new roles and changing skill mix on patient, staff and cost outcomes.

Abstract

Economic constraints and increasing demand for health care have led to the development of a range of new health care practitioner roles in both emergency and urgent care settings. A core aim of many of these new roles is cost reduction by labour substitution, but they are also introduced to improve care quality.
This briefing report summarises the evidence about the impact of introducing new roles and changing skill mix on patient, staff and cost outcomes.
