Health Human Resources: Can Present Trends Be Altered?

Mark Rochon

Abstract

Predicting the need for health human resources and ensuring an adequate supply continues to confound those with a stake in health services . The many interrelated factors that influence the demand and supply of health professionals seem to exceed our ability to develop strategies that ensure a healthy balance between the size of the health services workforce and the needs of Canadians.We continue to focus on specific health disciplines rather than considering alternatives and implementing policy options that recognize the interdependence of health professionals.
