ACCPA Submission National Allied Health Workforce Strategy Draft Outline

ACCPA welcomes the development of the Strategy, which we believe has the potential to improve access to allied health services for older Australians living in residential aged care facilities and those in rural and remote areas.

ACPPA notes that once developed, the Strategy will outline what steps are needed to ensure there are enough highly trained allied health professionals distributed across the country, and will describe how the Australian Government, state and territory governments, universities and professional asso-ciations can work together to improve planning for the allied health workforce.

This submission has been prepared from an aged care perspective with input from ACCPA members.
