Informing Oregon’s efforts to ensure culturally and linguistically responsive care for all.
Oregon has long been working to transform its health care system to achieve health equity, expand access to care, improve population health outcomes, and ensure a financially sustainable and high-quality health care system.
In this project, our team developed the 2023 Health Care Workforce Needs Assessment report in accordance with House Bill 3261.
Our report provides insights into health care workforce needs in communities across Oregon as well as general guidance on how to expand and diversify the health care workforce to meet the needs of patients and communities throughout Oregon and eliminate health inequities.
Funding is provided by the Oregon Health Authority.
This biennial Health Care Workforce Needs Assessment informs Oregon’s efforts to ensure culturally and linguistically responsive care for all.
The report synthesizes policy recommendations across all segments of Oregon’s health care workforce, based on its review of health care workforce development investments, workforce resiliency, trends and COVID-19 impacts, and specific workforces requiring attention.
The findings point to some priority recommendations.
