PDF 8.73 MB
The SA Rural Nursing and Midwifery Workforce Plan sets the direction for nursing and midwifery workforce planning across regional South Australia for the next 5 years.
The SA Rural Nursing and Midwifery Workforce Plan (PDF 9MB) was released by the Minister for Health and Wellbeing, the Hon. Stephen Wade MLC, on 12 May 2021.
The plan was developed under the leadership of the Rural Health Workforce Strategy Steering Committee, with input from the SA Rural Nursing and Midwifery Workforce Plan Working Party.
The process to develop the plan included an extensive data collection and stakeholder consultation process, culminating in the important workshop ‘The Future’s in Your Hands’, held on 1 September 2020.
On 12 February 2021, a consultation draft of the SA Rural Nursing and Midwifery Workforce Plan was released to seek feedback from clinicians, local health network leads, consumers, professional bodies and leading organisations on the content and prioritisation of the identified strategies. From February to April 2021, a program of in-person consultation sessions was held across all regional and metropolitan local health networks, with opportunities for written feedback also provided. The feedback received shaped the development of the final plan.
