Why is an ASP required?

  • We need to know a little bit about why an ASP is required. Please provide a brief description of the service issue that is being addressed, benefits an ASP would bring to the workforce and patients, and a brief gap analysis of training already available if any.

What is the workforce need and estimated numbers of trainees?

  • Tell us about the workforce need that this ASP will meet and how many trainees you anticipate will take the course in the first few years. Are you proposing an ASP to meet a need in your workplace, will the ASP be applicable to multiple workplaces and/or is there a national need for training in this area? We will consider all proposals where appropriate justification is given.
