Charter and Focus

The Health Care Workforce Committee is a committee of the Oregon Health Policy Board. The Health Care Workforce Committee is chartered to coordinate efforts in Oregon to recruit and educate health care professionals and retain a quality workforce to meet the demand created by the expansion in health care coverage, system transformation and an increasingly diverse population.

The Health Care Workforce Committee will focus its work on identifying resources, needs, and supply gaps, and ensuring a culturally competent workforce that is reflective of Oregon’s increasing diversity. The Committee will advise and develop recommendations and action plans to the Oregon Health Policy Board for implementing the necessary changes to train, recruit and retain a dynamic health care work force that is scaled to meet the needs of new systems of care.
