The purpose of this blog is to explore how work is affected in the changing health care industry. Many factors will change in this expanding field as our population grows and ages, new diseases emerge, technology advances, and health care reform takes place. The focus of these posts will be on aspects that affect work in the industry. What new jobs will be created? How will existing health care jobs evolve to accommodate the changes? Will any of the changes contribute to more stress, disease, and burnout? What changes will improve conditions for health workers? What effect does new technology have on the work lives of health care professionals?
Join us as we take a look at how work in health care evolves with changing health care economics, patient populations, diseases, technologies, instruments, environments, and other factors.
