Optimise your allied health workforce with a comprehensive guide to workforce planning.

Join Professor Susan Nancarrow as she guides you through the process of reframing your allied health workforce challenges into workable solutions using a proven methodology which has been developed with and adopted by allied health workforce leaders nationally and internationally over the last 20 years. 

This workshop leads you through a step-by-step approach to workforce planning, starting with understanding the current state of your organisation’s workforce, identifying existing challenges and projecting future needs and ideal outcomes. We will then guide you through the development of a workforce plan that aligns with your organisation’s goals and objectives.

Throughout this workshop we will use:

  • Established workforce planning frameworks and tools;
  • Allied health specific examples;
  • A structured engagement and project governance approach to support project sustainability; and
  • Tools to present and pitch your workforce plan to your stakeholders.

This workshop is specifically designed for:

  • Allied health professionals;
  • Employers;
  • Professional associations; and
  • Other healthcare providers.

You will explore the workforce challenges facing the allied health professionals you represent and develop targeted strategies to overcome these challenges.

By the end of the workshop, you will have been introduced to a step-by-step approach to workforce planning that enables you to structure a workforce plan that is aligned with your organisation’s goals and objectives and optimised to meet the needs of your allied health workforce. You will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to drive workforce planning initiatives and create a more efficient, effective, and sustainable healthcare organisation. 

In addition to the one day in-person workshop, your learning will be supported with six months’ access to an interactive, online learning community and repository of key resources. To register for this event, please click here.
