Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN 2018 Training Needs Analysis Results

December 18, 2018

Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN recently completed a Training Needs Analysis survey to determine the training and education needs of primary healthcare providers in the region. 

The results of this survey are just a snapshot of some of the feedback we have received from across the region. 

In total, 171 primary healthcare professionals completed the survey and this information will help inform the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN’s training and education plan and calendar for the 2019 year, however we acknowledge that the needs of primary healthcare professionals in our region continue to evolve, and the recommendations below are not exhaustive. 

We will continue to seek feedback from our primary healthcare providers throughout on an annual basis so that we can be responsive to your education and training needs.
