National Health Workforce Innovation and Reform Strategic Framework for Action 2011 – 2015 and Background Paper.

The Framework has been designed to provide an overarching, national platform that will guide future health workforce policy and planning in Australia. It sets out key priority areas and five essential domains that create the foundation for an integrated, high performing workforce fit to meet Australia’s health care needs.

The Framework and accompanying Background Paper are now available on the HWA website: www.hwa.gov.au/wir/strategy. Hard copies are also available by request via the website.

HWA worked with RACMA representatives to develop the Framework. Thank you to all of our RACMA representatives that were involved in this process.
