Why Attend Healthcare Workforce Efficiency 2013?

Economic forecasting predicts that unchecked, health will consume 40% of Australian taxes by 2043, at which point government health expenditure will exceed their forecast budgets.

A recent study modelled future health workforce supply and demand and predicted without reform, a potential national shortage of 109,000 nurses and 2,700 doctors by 2025 under current policy settings. The HWA modelling indicated that the most effective policy intervention for meeting the increased demand would be to adopt a process of reform and innovation to increase the productivity of the future workforce.

Set against a backdrop of ever increasing budget cuts and headcount reduction, never has there been a greater need for the health sector to examine workforce productivity and consider how the utilisation of strategic workforce planning, targeted healthcare training pathways and workforce redesign can help to achieve healthcare workforce efficiency.

Workforce Efficiency in Healthcare 2013 will address the challenges you face and guide you through the strategies you can deploy to boost the productivity of your workforce and develop efficient training pathways to ensure that your organisation is best placed to respond to future healthcare demands.

What Topics will be Covered?

Through research with past delegates and healthcare stakeholders and in response to your individual training requirements, this year’s summit will feature streamed afternoon plenary sessions covering the areas of Strategic Workforce Planning and Education, Learning and Development.

  • The Mason Review of Australian Government Health Workforce Programs
