Addressing the Needs of an Aging Population through Health Professions Education: A Workshop Series
December 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
One event on December 8, 2022 at 9:00 am
Aging individuals represent a spectrum of health longevity to multiple co-morbidities. The National Academies’ Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professionals Education will host a public workshop series on Dec. 7-8 to explore the varied needs of an aging population and what a health workforce that could match those identified population needs might look like, particularly the size of the workforce and what skills they could have. Discussion will explore who will make up the health workforce, training requirements for each level of care provider, who will provide the training and education, and in what setting the training will take place.
