Health Care Delivery SLP4

Shortage of health care personnel statistics

Another challenge affecting health care delivery is the growing shortage of health care personnel. Quality, a major concern of health care, is directly impacted by understaffing.

For your Module 4 SLP, conduct research on the need for health care personnel in your state, city/town, or a location that you are familiar with. Based on your research, compose a 2-page memorandum to your local/state (Texas) representative identifying your findings. In your memorandum, include the following:

  • Detailed statistics on the shortage of health care personnel in your selected geographical area.
  • Comparative statistics to the national shortage of health care personnel.
  • Explain how health care personnel shortage is affecting health care delivery currently and within the next 10 years.
