Private sector steps up to train Australia’s health workforce

The Australian private hospital sector makes a substantial contribution to training Australia’s health workforce and with further investment from governments could do much more, a new CHA-APHA report shows (available to download).
 
The ‘Education and training in the private hospital sector’ report, produced by the Australian Private Hospitals Association (APHA) and Catholic Health Australia (CHA) shows the private sector’s investment in training doctors, nurses and allied health workers has increased to $167 million from $30 million a decade ago.
