Do you struggle to hire adequately trained health care workers? Common Ground Health, in partnership with the Rural and Central New York Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) and the Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS) want to hear from you. In April, we will be conducting a region-wide survey of the skills and knowledge that today’s health care workforce needs. Now that health care is more often delivered in integrated clinical and community settings, employees may need new abilities and approaches. The survey will ask about skills that are needed for leadership/management and front line staff. Data from the survey will be shared will colleges, universities and other partners.
This survey will be distributed in April 2020 and is meant for Executive Staff/CEO, HR Representatives and/or Program Directors.
If you have questions or to add names to the distribution list, email Melissa Pennise.
