Health Workforce Australia (HWA) is currently conducting a comprehensive study of ambulance officers and paramedics to build nationally consistent evidence that will support future workforce planning needs.

HWA intends to collect workforce data from private sector employers , covering the current number of staff, gender and hours worked and service activity. Once complete, the study will be published and available for HWA, jurisdictions, employers and the profession at large to help identify future workforce planning needs.

Paramedics Australasia commends this workforce study to all private employers. It is in the  interests of all that national information be obtained that is as accurate as possible.

Subject to any legal requirements to disclose, all survey information will be kept confidential. Aggregate results may be published.
