With a new State government formed, The Victorian Department of Health are recommencing activities for Health Workforce Consultation Strategies for 2023 with the aim to reshape how the workforce is planned and delivered in Victoria. (Health Workforce Strategy | health.vic.gov.au)
There will be a subsequent round of consultation with Victorian healthcare individuals and institutions about the state-wide Workforce Strategy in March-April 2023.
VSC has made a joint representation with Victorian ANZICS and ACCCN regarding this in October 2022 and will continue to advocate.
For those ICU doctors interested in contributing their voice or work to the next phase, please consider joining in with Victorian CICM or ANZICS to do this. Please encourage your nursing colleagues to contact ACCCN.
