Making Sense of the System: How States Can Use Health Workforce Policies to Increase Access and Improve Quality of Care
This report offers evidence about why colleagues in state government should address shortages of health workers despite difficulties of current fiscal situations. The author, Edward Salsberg, assesses the best available data about current and projected demand for health workers. He then summarizes practical suggestions for policy to reduce shortages of health workers that are likely to threaten access to health services of appropriate quality.
