“Where did all the health care workers go? Health workforce trends before and during the pandemic.”

Webinar Livestream

Dr. Bianca Frogner is an internationally recognized health economist with expertise on the health workforce. As the Director of the Center for Health Workforce Studies, she has been leading a team of investigators and research staff to understand how the health workforce has been evolving and ways to optimize the use of health care workers on a team. Health care workers including physicians, nurses, and aides/assistants have played essential roles in caring for the health of the population during the pandemic yet have also faced many personal challenges leading to burnout. In this talk, Dr. Frogner will discuss what we knew about the health workforce pre-pandemic and what has happened to the workforce over the last two years that may help us understand shortages being experienced today.
