Information about the methodology used in the Phillips 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
  • Genomics
  • 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.

  1. How are technological and other developments likely to change the roles and functions of the nursing and midwifery workforce?
  2. What are the implications for the size, shape and skills of this workforce?
  3. What does this mean for selection, curricula, education, training, development and lifelong learning of the current and future nursing and midwifery workforce?
  4. What are the considerations for inclusion, equality and diversity? 

The Panels

Each panel, as a minimum, will consist of:

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
