Summary

This book is the first both to examine policy issues across the health professions and to weigh these issues across all levels of policymaking. Its papers consider how federal and state governments, academic institutions, the marketplace and the health professions themselves all create and shape health policy. After reviewing the roles and responsibilities of the various policymakers, attention is devoted to the difficulties of forecasting workforce demand, need and supply. Finally, this book offers a framework for improving the policy process surrounding health workforce issues.
