Consult with the steering committee and stakeholders about the strategic plan and use this feedback to inform the strategic planning process.

Engaging the steering committee and stakeholders will ensure that:

  • the project findings directly inform the strategic goals for integrating the allied health assistant (AHA) workforce
  • the goals are consistent with organisational priorities.

See the downloads section for a template for a steering committee presentation and the final steering committee guide.
