Workforce Planning for Healthcare
Australia’s health system is facing significant challenges, including an ageing population and an ageing health workforce; and an increased demand for health services with higher numbers of people requiring complex and long-term care.
Against a backdrop of headcount reductions and tightened fiscal constraints, Australia’s health care sector is dealing with the challenges of its workforce now and into the future.
With that in mind, this years Workforce Planning Healthcare 2016 summit has been specifically designed to address these challenges. Key areas to be covered include:
- Collection and use of electronic health data and how this information can be used to better project and predict issues and pressures within the health workforce
- Understanding current workforce and forecasting future workforce requirements through scenario planning, risk management and workforce analytics
- Enhancing workforce effectiveness through strong leadership and cultural change
