Key Thinkers Forum – 9 September 2019
We know that an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander local health workforce is vital for the success of Closing the Gap in health disparity in Australia. We also know that allied health is vital for overall health. Allied health career pathways for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people provide a culturally appropriate ‘scaffold’ for health service delivery to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander populations.
The esteemed panel will interrogate existing workforce challenges, strategies to grow, train and support existing and high demand new workforces and postulate where future demand will be needed.
