HEE seeks answers to problem of healthcare dropouts

Health Education England has published the findings of a project to understand why so many healthcare students fail to stay the course. It focuses particularly on rates of attrition among the newly-qualified workforce in the early stages of their careers.

The project covered the four fields in nursing (adult, child, learning disabilities and mental health) along with midwifery and therapeutic radiography.

HEE has also produced a toolkit to help higher education institutions, service provider organisations and policy makers to reduce attrition.
