Report on the Audit of Health Workforce in Rural and Regional Australia

1.5 Workforce reports

Page last updated: April 2008

Determination of the volume of supply of Australian trained and overseas trained health professionals has been the subject of a number of enquiries, reviews and reports, such as Australia's Health Workforce by the Productivity Commission in 2005. Several relatively recent studies have also been undertaken on individual components of the health sector, such as those of the Australian Medical Workforce Advisory Committee and Australian Health Workforce Advisory Committee. The findings of these reports have also been considered in the audit process. Attachment B provides a summary of these various source documents.
