Evidence-based healthcare workforce policy requires sound, empirical data that is specifically designed to answer key questions. Policy decision-makers and researchers need a reliable resource of information on the number, demographics, practice location and other characteristics of licensees who provide healthcare services. Unfortunately, the existing body of research is small, lacks consistent methodologies and definitions, and addresses disjointed topic areas.

Licensing boards can play a crucial role in surveying licensees through licensure renewal to collect meaningful, standard minimum data sets that are comparable within and across professions, locations, and over time. This webinar brings together a panel of best practices workforce policy research experts to share insights from one state’s initiative to show what agencies can do, to discuss the significance of healthcare workforce data for policy and planning and to provide information on technical assistance on data collection and analysis.

This webinar is in follow-up to a session by the same title presented at the 2016 Annual Educational Conference in Portland and will provide additional examples of how this licensing board research is leveraged to support policy and planning initiatives, grants, professional pipeline development and more.
