Methods: It will provide some practical information through a case study and will summarize the main developments and methods have been used in the area of healthcare workforce policy and how these have affected key health workforce performance outcomes. Results and Conclusion: The staffing plan in a healthcare setting should be based on the level of scope of care provided, the frequency of care and the level of competency of staff necessary to provide quality care.
