We are pleased to present a series of podcasts presenting the emerging results of a review of the research evidence on the impact of staff engagement in the NHS.
The review, undertaken by a team led by Professor Katie Truss of University of Sussex, analyses the available research evidence on key issues related to staff engagement in healthcare. This study, funded by the National Institute of Healthcare Research, has yet to be fully published. The emerging findings from the review are presented in the podcasts by members of the research team in discussion with Steven Weeks, policy manager on staff engagement with NHS Employers.
Each podcast focuses on a different aspect of the issue and there are slides associated with each podcast, which give further information and background information*.
