Effect and experiences of part-time work in the healthcare services - project description

Published Updated

The protocol describes two scoping reviews that will map the published evidence regarding part-time work (including effects and experiences) in the healthcare and community care services.


Summary

In Norway, there is a situation with a high proportion of part-time personnel in both the community care and healthcare services, where in 2017 only 40-43% of nurses worked full-time. It has been suggested that part-time work may have a negative impact on users’ and patients’ perceived quality of care, and maybe also on the personnel. In Norway, there is great regional variation in the proportion of part-time personnel in the care services, which may result in inequalities in the care provided. We do, however, know very little about the consequences of part-time work on patients, users and personnel. This protocol describes two scoping reviews that will map the published evidence regarding part-time work (including effects and experiences) in the healthcare and community care services. One will focus on patients/users and the other on personnel. These scoping reviews, which are commissioned by the Norwegian Directorate of Health, will be used in the Kompetanseløft 2020 project, which is the government's plan for recruitment, competence and professional development in the community health care services.
