The Mason Review of Australian Government Health Workforce Programs

Minister for Health Tanya Plibersek has released the final report of the independent review into Australian Government's health workforce programs. The Mason Review of Australian Government Health Workforce Programs makes 87 recommendations covering Commonwealth programs that target the medical, dental, allied health, nursing and midwifery and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforces.

"I commissioned this review of our health workforce programs to ensure that Australian communities have access to a highly qualified health workforce now and into the future," Ms Plibersek said. "As a first step in responding to the review, I have accepted the report's recommendations to provide a more advanced system for classifying rural locations and areas of workforce need to determine eligibility for support and funding through many Commonwealth workforce programs."
