In this new system of care, physicians work alongside health care teams, where nurses, pharmacists, and other professionals must collaborate toprovide better, more affordable care to many more patients than ever before. The Healthcare Professional Workforce is the first book to codify the transformations underway across health professions in the U.S. and to situate these changes within a larger context for both healthcare and non-healthcare audiences. This volume provides an important guide to understanding howhealth professionals fit within the emerging model of healthcare, and serves as a vital resource for readers in health policy management, medicine, public health, and organizational studies. Comprising seven unique chapters alongside commentaries from heads of healthcare organizations and influential physicians, The Healthcare Professional Workforce provides a theoretical and practical benchmark for understanding the next generation of human capital in one of society's most importantlabor sectors.
