Delivering a skilled and knowledgeable ultrasound workforce
As a multipurpose diagnostic technique, ultrasound plays a vital role in providing timely and effective healthcare that can deliver significant improvements in patient outcomes.
We commissioned a survey from the Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI), to investigate and address reported shortages in the ultrasound workforce. The survey captured:
- the different staff groups who perform ultrasound, either as a direct service or as a tool within another service
- availability of ultrasound training
- barriers to service delivery and training.
Results from the survey will feed into workstreams aimed at improving training provision for the ultrasound workforce.
