The CfWI is supporting the Department of Health maternity workforce planning.

The maternity workforce project aims to conduct an assessment of the maternity planning and benchmarking tools that are currently available. The findings of this research will be used to inform the Department of Health (DH) in the development of their Maternity Matrix tool and to inform the CfWI's future plans on developing an integrated maternity workforce model.

The CfWI has identified a range of tools that are currently in use and engaged with tool designers and end users to understand their functionality and relative metrics. These findings will then be incorporated into a summary of the overall findings. The tools and approaches examined cover a range of workforce issues with functionality including data modelling, workforce planning, service design and benchmarking.
