Plan for INVOLVE 2020 .......
The theme for INVOLVE 2020 is...
Our Waka, New Seas.
With what’s in our waka,
together we navigate new seas.
INVOLVE 2020 focuses on the changes we see approaching the sectors working with the taiohi/youth of Aotearoa. It also looks at the skills, tools, wisdom and connections we have to meet these changes – including the histories that inform us.
We are excited to be in this waka with you!

Your Exec attended ............
We believe investing in Youth Health delivery reaps triple rewards:
The youth population requires a particular skill set to work with them effectively and this is not always addressed in disease –focused training models.
These implications will require a renewed look at coordination of workforce development to meet the changing needs and wider scope of the professionals involved in health care for adolescents/youth at the primary and referral levels. The workforce requires a multidisciplinary focus (and the skill set for MDT work) to minimize addressing needs in silos.
SYHPANZ strongly supports and advocates for a robust and skilled Youth Health Workforce. We also aim to ensure sustainability and recognise we need a proactive workforce succession strategy.
Recently some of the Exec attended:
Opportunities have arisen for SYHPANZ to discuss further around these areas, in particular Health Workforce.
