Workforce Competency Development


Kết quả xổ số xsmn hôm nayThe core mission of hospitals and health care systems is caring for people. To fulfill that mission, hospitals and health systems need compassionate, skilled, trained, and dedicated professionals.

Health care is a labor-intensive field, requiring 24-hour-per-day/seven-days-per-week staffing to achieve optimal quality outcomes. Investment in a qualified and engaged multi-disciplinary workforce is foundational.

To advance workforce issues, the AHA has developed a Workforce Agenda focused on the following priorities:

  • CAPACITIES: Ensure hospitals have sufficient workforce capacities, through a pipeline of talent that hospitals can hire, retain and grow, to be able to successfully support health in their communities.
  • COMMUNITIES: Support and tap into health professional communities to build resiliency and a healthy, safe, and diverse work environment.
  • COMPETENCIES: Identify, promote and develop required workforce competencies for current and future needs.
  • CATALYSTS: Provide tools, programs and services to be catalysts for member and field action to change and adopt new technologies and models for care delivery.
