In March 2010, JFF hosted two working meetings that brought attention to an often-overlooked issue central to the quality, access, and affordability of health care: The health sector does not have enough qualified workers to ensure quality care for aging Baby Boomers, the newly insured, and a more diverse U.S. population. David Altstadt reports on the Washington discussions, which drew upon the on-the-ground experiences of three nationwide initiatives that are supporting community efforts to bolster the skills development, job quality, and retention of frontline health care workers: Jobs to Careers, the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, and Breaking Through.
