Palliative Care Tasmania (PCT) is being funded to facilitate and implement the Strengthening Communities of Care Strategy (SCCS) and Action Plan developed by the Tasmanian Government. The SCCS identifies the key priorities and actions required to ensure that Tasmania has a ‘skilled, responsive, confident, competent and sustainable palliative care workforce into the future’.
In order to achieve this, PCT is developing the SCCS Workforce Development Implementation Plan. This Plan will identify what needs to be done, by whom and by when in order to address the communities of care workforce capacity (supply) and capability (quality) into the future.
The survey will assist in identifying and quantifying key workforce development issues for the palliative care workforce in Tasmania. Your responses will enable Palliative Care Tasmania to develop a good profile of the numbers and characteristics of people working in palliative care in Tasmania. We invite you to complete this survey to give key insight on these issues. Your responses will be invaluable in building a comprehensive understanding of the issues facing the palliative care workforce.
Please note that we have developed two surveys: one for service providers, and one for individuals, with the aim of gathering a range of views on current issues in palliative care in Tasmania. If you are able to speak on behalf of your organisation, please complete the service provider survey, otherwise, please complete the individual survey.
Please respond to the survey by 5pm, Thursday 19 September 2019.
