The Careerforce Workforce Development Conference 2014 was held from 20 to 21 May at Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand) in Wellington. The Conference brought people together to discuss the challenges and opportunities that face the workforce in this sector.
Common themes emerged from the conference. Some of the international guests commented on the similarities of issues that we face globally. Many of the challenges in New Zealand are the same as theirs, albeit on a much larger scale.
There was recognition from all speakers that the non-regulated health workforce is very much seen as the connecting link between clinical services and the delivery of healthcare to the consumer.
