How will The Ives Review be conducted?
Information about the methodology used in the Ives Review.
The Review will adopt the same methodology as The Topol Review and will consider 7 themes organised under 3 expert advisory panels.
Panel 1: Exploiting Data and Science
- Artificial intelligence, data science and research
Panel 2: Person Centred
- Nursing in a place-based health and social care system
- Emerging technologies and opportunities (including remote care)
Panel 3: Practice and Development
- Professionalisation of the specialist digital Nursing and Midwifery workforce
- Workforce planning
- Preparation for practice
The Panels will examine the impact of technological advances both in the ‘here and now’ and over the next 5, 10 and 20 years. They will address 4 key questions related to the nursing and midwifery workforce and its education and skills.
- How are technological and other developments likely to change the roles and functions of the nursing and midwifery workforce?
- What are the implications for the size, shape and skills of this workforce?
- What does this mean for selection, curricula, education, training, development and lifelong learning of the current and future nursing and midwifery workforce?
- What are the considerations for inclusion, equality and diversity?
Each panel, as a minimum, will consist of:
- 2 Co-Chairs (one from England and one international)
- an educationalist
- an additional subject matter expert (SME)
- a ‘Phillips Ives’ Nursing Fellow
- a Health Education England People's Advisory Forum representative
Panels will also have access to an ethicist and a health economist. Panels are encouraged to invite other SMEs to contribute to the work as appropriate.
How will the Review be delivered over the year?
The Co-Chairs will lead and progress their panels at pace through:
- gathering evidence from diverse sources (round tables, 1:1s, virtual visits)
- systematically exploring predictions and possibilities
- reaching conclusions on the implications
- supporting a period of engagement and refinement of the Final Report prior to publication in 2023
