"This document provides a framework for establishing and maintaining a senior emergency medicine workforce. It describes the considerations health services should make in planning for appropriate senior emergency department (ED) medical staffing. 
Emergency physicians are an integral part of hospital staffing. They provide clinical leadership and quality care for ED patients, and perform essential teaching, education, managerial, administrative planning and advisory roles. These activities occur within the ED, and at hospital, district, regional, state, and national level. Directors of Emergency Medicine and health administrators have a duty to ensure that ED staffing allows for the delivery of high quality patient care. 
The demand for ED care is increasing both in total numbers of patients as well as the complexity and severity of presenting conditions. At the same time, government and community expectations regarding quality and timeliness of care have increased. This trend is likely to continue over the next decade with the rapid expansion of the elderly population. 
This document outlines a general framework for health services to use in establishing their senior emergency medicine workforce. The framework focuses on activities in two key areas: 
  • Constructing a senior emergency medicine (EM) workforce; and
  • Retaining a senior EM workforce. 
Effectiveness across these two areas will ensure the longevity of the profession and the sustainability of its senior workforce. From an organisational perspective the benefits of a stable, senior emergency medicine workforce include retention of corporate knowledge, increased investment in hospital process development (both in and outside the emergency department), reduced costs (through avoidance of repeated recruitment and reduced need for short term/locum staffing), and the establishment of a culture of clinical excellence in both patient care and staff training"
