The CHWN partnered with the Health Council of Canada to initiate and populate a health workforce (HWF) innovations portal to showcase innovative approaches to health workforce issues. This was recently expanded to include innovations presented at the Canadian Heatlh Workforce Conference that was held in Ottawa in October 2014.  We highlight these innovations within the five key HWF themes of the Canadian Health Workforce Network.
