Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Critical to health care reform is recruiting and training a multiprofessional workforce working together collaboratively with individuals, families, and communities using an interprofessional team approach. This chapter characterizes how Oregon has approached the recruitment and retention of health care professionals to meet the demand, now and into the future, as well as providing the competency training for a new system of care. Three workforce training interventions that have emerged as catalysts to implementation of health reform in Oregon are described in the final section of this chapter: (1) the Clinical Innovation Fellows Program; (2) the Traditional Health Workers Program; and (3) the Patient-Centered Primary Care Home Program.
