Critical Care Workforce Model

The Critical Care Workforce Model has been developed to aid workforce planning within the critical care environment by providing an overview of the different roles that could make up the critical care multidisciplinary team.

Many new roles have joined the critical care team in recent years and this guide enables you to find out more about each of the roles that could work as part of the critical care multi-disciplinary team, how their skills contribute to patient care, how they are trained and the length of time it takes to train then.

Using this guide will support with recruitment planning, workforce planning and education commissioning. 

Who is this guide for? This guide is aimed at anyone undertaking workforce planning and/or workforce change or transformation within the critical care environment.
