SK launches four-point action plan to recruit, train, incentivize, retain health care workers

The Government of Saskatchewan recently announced a new four-point human resources action plan for the health care sector that includes steps related to recruitment and training. Under the plan, the province intends to identify further program possibilities, such as new program areas or additional training seats, with postsecondary partners. SK further indicated that it is looking to recruit internationally educated healthcare professionals (IEHPs) and others with healthcare experience in the province who are eligible for training or employment in the sector. “Bolstering our healthcare workforce through competitive recruitment efforts is a top priority for our government,” said SK Minister of health Paul Merriman, “and we are expanding on our four-point plan to recruit, train, incentivize and retain healthcare providers to stabilize and steadily grow the provincial workforce.” SK Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
