The Taskforce developed a staffing and skill mix framework related to general and specialist medical and surgical settings in adult hospitals, based on best available international evidence. This approach is being replicated in relation to emergency care settings (Phase II). The Taskforce will set out clearly the assumptions upon which the framework is determined. It will pilot the Framework in the Emergency Care settings, make recommendations around the implementation and monitor the framework, including the necessary education, training, and guidance. Finally, the Taskforce will present a written report to the Minister for Health.
