    Abstract

    Individuals and communities are experiencing increasingly complex health issues which vary widely in different local contexts (World Health Organization (WHO), 2010). Healthcare systems are accordingly highly complex, interconnected and constantly changing, with reforms regularly implemented. The increasing costs of healthcare result in governments and healthcare organisations focusing on public cost containment, often reducing the healthcare workforce and increasing client numbers.
