Abstract

This report outlines findings and recommendations on research into the support and training requirements of the non-surgical oncology workforce. It finds that whilst the workforce has grown in absolute terms, it has not done so in line with the growth in demand for treatment. The report highlights the need for improved workforce planning in this area to address current and future staff shortages and to develop standardised role descriptions.
