Workforce futures: towards research-informed reform

Mr Dean Raven1

Department of Health and Human Services

Health and human services in Victoria are going through an unprecedented period of transformation. Reforms such as the 10 Year Mental Health Plan, Health 2040: Advancing Health, Access and Care, Roadmap for Reform: Strong Families, Safe Children, Ending Family Violence: Victoria’s Plan for Change, and rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme provide opportunities for research, innovation and the embedding of evidence into learning systems and practice. This presentation will discuss how these reforms are structured and integrated, and the implications and opportunities for researchers and academics.
