12:30 PM Implementing a Sustainable Workforce Support Methodology to Support the Capability and Wellbeing of NSW Rural Health Professionals

Recruitment and retention of health professionals to rural and remote areas is a global challenge. The maldistribution of health professionals across primary and tertiary health services contributes to the existing health inequalities between rural and urban areas. In light of this, the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) aims to support the attraction and recruitment of a sustainable rural healthcare workforce.

Learn about RDN’s:
  • Whole-of-person and whole-of-life workforce support methodology, which has proven fundamental to success in engaging clinicians across their entire career path and enhanced retention in rural practice
  • Investigation into the importance of capability factors beyond clinical competence in recruitment and retention for rural health practice such as emotional, cultural and workplace wellbeing
  • Forward planning and initiatives to support workforce capability and wellbeing, such as Rural Health Pro and Rural Health Together
