Overview

The 2017 Indiana Health Collaborative Conference, hosted by The Bowen Center for Health Workforce Research & Policy and Indiana Area Health Education Center (AHEC) invites you to attend this exciting collaboration, one of the most synergizing health workforce conferences of 2017.

Demands are being placed on health systems to transform care delivery. Likewise, there are emerging pressures to transform health professions education to be more responsive to the evolving needs of the health care delivery system. Compounding these challenges for the workforce are issues of supply, geographic maldistribution and lack of diversity. The 2017 Health Workforce Collaborative Conference will serve as a platform for united policy discussions from multiple perspectives regarding evidence-based strategies for impacting Indiana’s workforce.

  1. Engage a diverse group of key stakeholders in the discussion of emerging issues affecting the health workforce and health care delivery in Indiana
  2. Discuss strategies for strengthening Indiana’s health workforce
  3. Discuss the implications of workforce policy for health professions education
  4. Describe how to access and use health workforce data resources and tools
  5. Discuss health professions training, and the financing of that training, from the perspectives of education, labor, finance, and workforce diversity/distribution
