AHCCCS Workforce Development Vision is for Arizona’s contracted healthcare workforces to be as interpersonally, culturally, clinically and technically competent as possible. The state is shifting from a training compliance-based-policy, to a comprehensive competency-based policy to ensure that all aspects of Workforce Development are being addressed.
To demonstrate that the provider network is participating in this shift, all contracted Behavioral Health providers are required to submit an annual Workforce Development Plan (WFDP). The deliverable due dates will be communicated by the Workforce Development Alliance.
The WFDP shall describe the goals, objectives, tasks, and timelines to align your agency with the changing system culture from compliance to competency and to develop the workforce within your agency. All training initiatives, action steps and monitoring procedures outlined in the WFDP are to include targeted efforts for all employees, and shall incorporate best practices at all levels of service delivery utilizing the following practices
The Workforce Development Alliance has developed a template for the WFDP, which can be obtained from the link below. You may request technical assistance by contacting the Workforce Development Alliance through the Contact link above, or by reaching out to one of the contracted ACC Health Plan WFD Administrators.
