The NH Area Health Education Centers, with funding from the Endowment for Health, have released a new report on the state of clinical education placements in NH. The clinical placement process represents an important part of completing a clinically-based education, but the lack of sites; inconsistencies in managing the placement process; and the dwindling ability of skilled clinicians to act as preceptors in the workplace represent real barriers to having students complete their programs and enter the field.
· This report investigates the themes found, and makes some recommendations on how to decrease these barriers in the clinical placement process.
Network4Health played an important role in the development of ‘Giving Care: A Strategic Plan to Expand and Support New Hampshire’s Health Care Workforce’ in March 2022 by the Endowment for Health.
In March 2022, the Endowment for Health Forward Fundreleased “Giving Care: A Strategic Plan to Expand and Support NH’s Healthcare Workforce. Giving Care presents New Hampshire solutions to New Hampshire’s current health care workforce crisis. It is a plan that offers immediate, as well as longer-term strategies to expand and support our health care (and behavioral health) workforce. These solutions incorporate learning from previous successful workforce development efforts and provide specific actionable strategies to grow and retain the workforce, to ensure we have the data we need to prioritize investments, to improve the policy and regulatory environment, and – perhaps most importantly – to lead and coordinate implementation.
This actionable (two-year) plan was the work of 70+ stakeholders (advocates, educators, policy makers, regulators, labor specialists, providers, employers) participating in 4 workgroups to establish “action agendas” with goals, objectives, 107 strategies (including priorities & quick wins), timelines, and stakeholders. Whether you are an employer, a policymaker or government official, an institution of higher education or educator, or an advocate for the health care field, there is a role for you in implementing Giving Care.
