The Australian Workforce Assessment Recruitment and Retention Exercise (AWARE) Tool has been developed to support Tasmanian general practices to identify strengths and address developmental areas affecting the recruitment and retention of General Practitioners.
Designed specifically for regional, rural and remote general practice, the AWARE Tool seeks to identify opportunities for general practices to improve their ability to recruit and retain GPs.
The AWARE Tool has been designed to be completed by Practice Managers, Practice Owners/Principals and all General Practitioners operating in a practice. Once all nominated practice personnel complete the tool, Practice Managers/Owners will receive two reports.
HR+ has developed the AWARE Tool with the assistance of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care, who have provided funding through Primary Health Tasmania. Brentnalls Health have been involved in the design and pilot progam of the tool, whilst the Rural Doctors Association of Tasmania (RDAT) also support the initiative.
