Plan, Recruit, Retain: A Framework for Local Health Care Organizations to Achieve a Stable Remote Rural Workforce
Date: 03 September 2020
Recruiting and retaining a skilled health workforce is a common challenge for remote and rural communities worldwide, negatively impacting access to services, and in turn peoples’ health. The research literature highlights different factors facilitating or hindering recruitment and retention of health care workers to remote and rural areas, however there are few practical tools to guide local health care organizations in their recruitment and retention struggles.
The purpose of our paper is to describe the development process, the contents, and the suggested use of The Framework for Remote Rural Workforce Stability. The Framework is a strategy designed for rural and remote healthcare organizations to ensure the recruitment and retention of vital health care personnel.
