Abstract “Work as a Health Outcome” programme aims to equip healthcare professionals with the confidence, knowledge and skills to embed conversations about the benefits of work during clinical conversations. Public Health England conducted two types of research – qualitative and quantitative to understand the attitudes of healthcare professionals to health and work. Solutions Research was commissioned to carry out a qualitative research and PHE conducted the quantitative research. The qualitative methodology included an iterative approach, which included 32 in depth interviews were held among General Practitioners, Consultant Psychiatrists Orthopaedic Consultants, Consultant Rheumatologists, Psychiatric Nurses, Practice Nurses, Physiotherapists, Psychologists and Healthy Living Pharmacists between October and November 2017.The quantitative research was carried out through an anonymous nationwide online self-completion survey, which was open from 12 February to 13 March 2018. 1,997 healthcare professionals responded to the survey. This comprised: 64% allied health professionals, 25% registered nurses, 7% medical doctors, and 2% healthcare assistants.The two pieces of research complimented each other in their results. Both pieces of research concluded that healthcare professionals' value good work as being good for health and wellbeing, as well as demonstrating healthcare professional's reluctance at approaching conversations around health and work with their patients, and the need and enthusiasm for more accessible training for healthcare professionals. The results of the qualitative and quantitative research has led to the development of e-learning tools for healthcare professionals and the development of spiral health and work undergraduate curriculums for medical students. Funding Funded by the Joint Health and Work Unit (Department of Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care).
