Members discuss the future of skills and training in the RACHP sector.  We ask why everyone is going to have to up their game, as far as skills go, to achieve net zero objectives.  From fundamentals to new technologies, integration to behaviours.  We ask what does the future hold for training and how can we as individuals make a difference.
