Allied Health Insights Vol.3 No.5: How 21st Century Trends Are Reshaping The Allied Health Workforce

In this edition of Allied Health Insights

  • Revolutionary technologies, shifting demographic patterns and evolving societal needs are profoundly transforming the allied health sector. This week, we look at how these trends are impacting the allied health workforce and what this means for the future of allied health service delivery.
  • The Power Play in Healthcare: Who Really Holds the Scalpel? webinar is a “must-attend” for all healthcare leaders in a position to advocate for a concerted shift toward securing more sustainable, efficient and equitable access to safe and effective health services. Professional scopes of practice are under scrutiny and revision and this brings significant opportunity for board directors, managers, policy-makers and peak bodies to speak out to ensure that the healthcare system advances, safely and efficiently, to meet the significant and ever-growing demand for enhanced delivery of health care services. Taking place on February 22nd, our expert panel of presenters, Professor Susan Nancarrow, Professor Alan Borthwick OBE and Dr Anne-Louise Carlton, will lead a discussion exploring scopes of practice, and the mechanisms for ensuring that they are both supported and harnessed to evolve, as the sector itself is evolving, for the benefit of everyone involved in the delivery or receipt of healthcare services.
