Health workforce strategy for Queensland

Advancing health service delivery through workforce: A strategy for Queensland, 2017-2026

The Health Workforce Strategy for Queensland (PDF 9MB) sets out the overarching priorities and strategies for building the future health workforce for Queensland.  It offers a strategic pathway for building the system necessary to support, strengthen, and enable our workforce to deliver sustainable, consumer-centred healthcare into the future.

View a snapshot of the strategy (PDF 2.2MB).

The strategy will guide efforts in workforce design, clinical education and training, leadership, culture, and employment regulation and administration for the clinical and clinical support workforce in Queensland’s health sector.

The strategy has been developed through a collaborative process with stakeholders, and its implementation will allow the sector to respond to current and emerging challenges, and build on the opportunities available through emerging technologies and innovative service models and workforce design.

The workforce strategy overarches a number of other strategies, including the Medical Practitioner Workforce Plan for Queensland and Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Strategic Framework (316KB), and has been developed within the framework of My health, Queensland’s future: Advancing health 2026.
