The workstreams are now fully operational and have up to eight members with knowledge of the health and disability sector and their particular domains.

The Kaiāwhina Workforce Programme, a partnership between Careerforce and Health Workforce New Zealand, sets out a 20-year vision and a five-year action plan for the development of non-regulated healthcare workers. The programme is structured around seven domains. The workstreams reflect each domain:

  • Consumer Focus
  • Quality and Safety
  • Workforce Intelligence
  • Sustainability
  • Access
  • Career Development
  • Workforce Recognition
