May 20, 2016
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
How many nurses will be needed in a year? In two, or five? What exactly will their roles be, and where? Data are critical to answering these questions and others, and shaping the future of the nation’s health care. In this webinar, led by Erin Fraher, PhD, MPP, director of the Program on Health Workforce Research and Policy at Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, we will hear from researchers leading the way on the Institute of Medicine recommendation that organizations collaborate in collecting data on the nursing workforce.
Moderated by Joanne Spetz, PhD, FAAN, professor at the Institute for Health Policy Studies, University of California at San Francisco, the webinar’s other commenters include:
- Michelle Washko, PhD, Deputy Director, National Center for Health Workforce Analysis, Health Resources and Services Administration
- Carey McCarthy, PhD, MPH, RN, Director of Research, National Council of State Boards of Nursing
