Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


This Evidence Check rapid review aims to describe the current state of the biomedical engineering workforce in NSW and the challenges to maintaining this workforce. It draws on a scoping report prepared by the NSW Ministry of Health, a desktop review and interviews with key informants. The authors present key findings and recommendations for this small but critical workforce. These include addressing critical gaps in data on the workforce, clarifying and defining roles, issues around recruitment and retention, the impact of technological changes and issues around employment and deployment across diverse clinical contexts and within integrated health structures, services and systems.
