The Department of Health and Human Services is undertaking a research program into the allied health workforce. The Allied Health Workforce Research Program is specifically targeting psychologists, occupational therapists and social workers and is examining the workforce development issues that prevent allied health professions from meeting service demand.
Southern Cross University has been engaged by the Department of Health and Human Services to undertake the Victorian Allied Health Workforce Research Program. This three-year research program will generate qualitative and quantitative information to inform future policy directions and allied health workforce strategies. This will involve gathering in-depth data, from allied health employers, and individual allied health practitioners.
This survey is specifically designed for psychologists, occupational therapists and social workers who have ever worked in Victoria. More information and a link to the questionnaire can be found at: https://www2.health.vic.gov.au/health-workforce/allied-health-workforce/allied-health-research
