“One consequence of an ageing Australian population is the need for an aged care system that can respond to the needs of the older person, their families and carers.  However, the current aged care system needs fundamental reform if the supply of community and residential care are to keep pace with the projected demand for care, while at the same time providing increased choice.

Alzheimer’s Australia commissioned Access Economics to model different scenarios for the supply of aged care, to identify strategies to increase consumer choice and to promote service flexibility, and to identify funding options for a sustainable aged care system into the future.”

Victorian public hospital funding and productivity – report from Access Economics April 2009

Victorian public hospital funding and productivity Report from Access Economics

The Victorian health care system is at the forefront of service delivery in many areas. However, the current system is overly complicated and does not incorporate an evidence based review and benchmarking process to provide detailed information to health services of where improvements might be made. Looking forward, it is evident that much needs to be done to prepare the health system for the challenges ahead.

Supply and Demand for Anaesthesia Services 2009

Posted on April 17, 2009. Filed under: Anaesthesiology, Workforce | Tags: |

Australia will have a significant shortage of anaesthetists by 2028.  A major workforce study jointly commissioned by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and the Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA) projects a shortage of 2287 anaesthetists in Australia by 2028.

The workforce study “Supply and Demand for Anaesthesia Services” by economics consultants, Access Economics, examines the supply of, and demand for, anaesthesia services and identifies gaps in service provision over the next 20 years. The projections suggest a widening gap between demand and supply, rising from a very small shortage of four full-time equivalent (FTE) anaesthetists in 2008 to a short fall of 2287 practitioners in 2028.
