The Health Care Workforce: Education, Practice & Policy 

The Health Care Workforce in Eight States: Education, Practice & Policy (published in 2004 and 2002) provide in-depth assessments of the health workforce in selected States and an Interstate Comparison that assesses data and influences across the eight States. The studies were conducted for HRSA by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

In general, each state report includes a summary of health workforce data, available resources and a description of the collection of workforce data; a description of issues and influences affecting the health workforce, including the state's legislative and regulatory history and its current programs, financing and policies affecting health professions education, service placement and reimbursement, planning and monitoring, and licensure/regulation; an assessment of the state's internal capacity and existing strategies for addressing its workforce issues and influences; and an analysis of the policy implications of the state's current workforce data, issues, capacity and strategies.
