2019 Development Needs Survey

The 2019 Development Needs Survey report has now been published. Based on returns from over 650 health library staff, it provides a wealth of information on our training and development needs as well as our use of resources such as the PKSB for Health and the Learning Zone. It also reports on responses to questions about the ability to travel to training events and how many of our staff have attended leadership development programmes.

With many thanks to Michael Cook and the team of volunteers who organised the 2019 development needs survey and its subsequent analysis, this report now gives us lots of information: HEE LKS Leads can use it to develop our CPD offer to library staff as well as thinking about how best to position the various learning resources; and library staff can use it to think about their individual and team development needs.

Below is a summary table showing the top ten development needs that have emerged from the 2019 survey report:

Development Needs Analysis 2019

Help us plan our future CPD programme for you – the 2019 Library and Knowledge Services Development Needs Analysis Survey is now live and can be accessed by clicking here.  We need every member of the library and knowledge services team to complete it.

The survey runs until 30th November 2019.

Tell us what your development needs are and how you would prefer those needs to be met.

The 2017 Development Needs analysis was a great success with a record number of respondents (758). Crucially it created a rich data-set that allowed Health Education England to support your development at local, regional and national levels We ran a whole range of courses including measuring value and impact, and synthesising and summarising evidence.

Just to emphasise – we need everyone to complete the 2019 survey so that we can plan programmes over the next two years. We look forward to seeing what you say.

Many thanks
