  • Description
    "A plethora of tools exist to help employers to determine nurse staffing required. Although not perfect, the technical resource is none the less available to support planning, but are we willing to use it? In England the different systems have not been reviewed or tested and there is no consensus about the best approach to use. This paper asserts that decisions about current and future configurations of the nursing workforce are currently taken in a data vacuum." (excerpt from abstract)
