Getting it right - informing your planning

Informing your planning: Using data sources and metrics for workforce planning

Workforce planning is the systematic identification, analysis and planning of future workforce needs bases on population health needs and health strategy and policy.

Informing your planning is a guide to using data sources and metrics in workforce planning. It is a supplement to the Workforce planning guide and is designed to support DHB and NGO managers to use data sources and metrics to inform workforce planning activities.

The informing your planning guide is part of the Getting it right series of resources.
