About the CHWC:

The Canadian Health Workforce Conference (CHWC) brings together policy makers, academics, researchers, practitioners  and students from across the country with responsibility for and interest in health workforce issues.

The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity to engage in knowledge exchange and meaningful discussion on a range of health workforce issues and showcase the latest research and cutting-edge technology and innovation for health workforce policy, planning and management across the country.

CHWC 2016 Conference Theme:

The theme of the second CHWC is Optimizing the Canadian Health Workforce. The inspiration for this theme is the recently released report from the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences on Optimizing Scopes of Practice. This report set out a vision for a health workforce that was both more flexible and accountable to population and community health needs. This involves effective planning and efficient and equity deployment of health workers to meet the changing health needs of Canadians.
