OVERVIEW

Meeting the healthcare needs of Wisconsin’s citizens amid the current provider workforce shortage presents challenges and opportunities. The Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) convenes the Wisconsin Workforce Summit annually with the express purpose of bringing together stakeholders to develop strategies that address healthcare workforce needs, now and in the future.

PRACTICE GAPS AND NEEDS

The number of providers in Wisconsin is currently insufficient to meet the needs of its residents, especially in rural geographic and other under-served areas. It is anticipated that this trend will continue. Additional challenges to delivering healthcare include provider burnout and addressing the educational needs of future healthcare providers. These problems are being further magnified by the COVID-19 Pandemic and can also negatively impact healthcare access, disparities, and patient outcomes.

Planning for and ensuring an adequate workforce and infrastructure to support healthcare for now and in the future is critical for the health of Wisconsin citizens and beyond. Organizations and academic institutions need tools and strategies for policy change and to be able to adapt to new and challenging circumstances within their healthcare delivery systems and educational structures.

Global Learning Objectives

By the end of the summit learners will be able to:

  1. Describe the current healthcare workforce climate in Wisconsin
  2. Examine innovative healthcare education and training developments in Wisconsin
  3. Identify best practices of healthcare delivery in a COVID-19 environment
  4. Select appropriate strategies to address challenging workforce issues
  5. Discuss how the interprofessional team contributes to positive outcomes in healthcare delivery and professional satisfaction

Session Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the current trends in Wisconsin's healthcare workforce.
  2. Identify state and national resources that examine challenging healthcare workforce issues.
  3. Discuss drivers/factors that contribute to the current workforce climate in Wisconsin.
