This report sets out the current state of education and training for the promotion of workforce competencies and development required to deliver integrated care across the West Midlands region. The investigation provides insight that incorporates formal and informal, pre-registration and post-registration/CPD education and training that spans the future and existing health and social care workforce. The report begins by briefly describing integrated care only in as much as its principles and key features provide a necessary backdrop to the investigation. Primary research findings relating to how integrated working is incorporated into curricula in higher education institutions (HEIs) and their associated placements, and is inculcated in a small number of service settings across the region, are set against the international literature.
