Health work force needs? The Sentinel Network again seeks your input

September 13, 2017

You have an opportunity to let educators, policymakers and others around the state know about your health work force needs. The Washington Health Workforce Sentinel Network identifies the emerging occupations, skills and roles in demand at health care sites across the state. You can add your voice by being a Sentinel.

This opportunity to submit data from your organization is open now through the end of September. If you’ve provided data for past reports, please do so again in order to ensure the Sentinel Network is tracking work force demand changes.

Click here and then click “register now” to become a Sentinel.

Users of Sentinel Network findings include the state Health Workforce Council, the leadership of Accountable Communities of Health, college deans and health program directors, among others.

Findings can be viewed on the Sentinel Network website. Examples to-date include:

Your information will be kept confidential by combining it with other Sentinels’ data from across the state. Washington’s Sentinel Network is a collaboration of the state’s Workforce Board and the University of Washington’s Center for Health Workforce Studies, with funding from the Washington State Health Care Authority.
