Develop health partnerships to enhance your workforce’s capabilities and coverage 

19th October

Ensuring a sustainable workforce across all care sectors is an almighty challenge. Too often when one sector benefits it is to the detriment of another.  


Collaboration not competition is required to ensure that all New Zealander’s have access to the finest health system, serviced by an exemplary workforce who are highly skilled and supported in their work.  


Partnerships between stakeholders, knowing who and how to connect, embedding the structures to achieve progress - are all integral components to creating a sustainable effective workforce for not only your organisation, but also for your peers across the sectors.
