The AAMC Center for Workforce Studies is currently soliciting abstracts related to health workforce research for presentations at the 11th Annual Health Workforce Research Conference, which will be held April 30-May 1, 2015, in the Washington, D.C. area. The theme of this year’s conference isTransforming the Health Workforce: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. We are excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Alan Weil, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs and former executive director of the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP).
The AAMC Health Workforce Research Conference is the premier opportunity for researchers, educators, and policymakers to meet and discuss state and federal workforce issues.
Applicants are welcome to submit either individual abstracts as a presentation or poster, or full panels of three to four related presentations. Abstracts not accepted for a panel presentation may also be considered for a poster. The Conference Advisory Committee is particularly interested in research that informs health workforce policy. Both quantitative and qualitative research will be considered.
Topics of interest include:
Workforce Implications of New Care Delivery Models and Health System Redesign
Health Workforce Supply and Demand (Physicians, NPs, PAs, allied health, other)
Use of technology (e.g. telehealth, virtual clinics, email and phone visits)
