Horizon scanning activities at the CfWI

October 15, 2012 Comments off

On 15 October 2012 we have publicly launched the CfWI Horizon Scanning ‘Hub’ available at

The Hub was jointly developed by the CfWI, The University of Manchester and Futures Diamond. The following film explains the main demographic and financial challenges facing health and social care, before outlining why the CfWI has adopted horizon scanning as a means of helping organisations address these challenges. It explains:

  • the CfWI horizon scanning methodology
  • the projects where the CfWI has used horizon scanning
  • the organisations with whom the CfWI works.

The video concludes by illustrating what people think of the CfWI approach, before explaining the future work of the CfWI, including the CfWI’s new online information hub, which is designed to assist organisations in their workforce planning.
