APNA’s annual Workforce Survey has provided a comprehensive picture of the working conditions and professional concerns of primary health care nurses across Australia for more than 15 years. It is the only national survey focusing exclusively on nurses who work in primary health care.
2022 has left nurses feeling fed up. Even though COVID is still out there wreaking havoc in the community, governments have spent much of the year seeming determined to pretend the pandemic is no longer an issue.
However, things are changing. NSW and VIC are both facing state elections, while the new Albanese Labor Government seems keen to make changes and fix some of the problems with our health system – and the Workforce Survey will play a big role in that.
The Survey has become an indispensable tool for those planning for the future of health care in Australia. It’s used by the AIHW, the nation’s agency for health and welfare information and statistics. The figures and information from this year’s Survey will be used to advise the government on its 10-year reform agenda for primary health care.
If there is one survey that a primary health care nurse should complete this year, it is this one. It should take about twenty five minutes to complete – why not have your say while enjoying a coffee?
Now is your chance to tell our politicians what you think. With several state elections due within months, they are listening harder than ever. Please share this link with your colleagues so they can also have their say.
Thank you for your participation in the 2022 APNA Workforce Survey. Results of previous surveys are available at the top of the list below this text.
