In this new economic and technological era, there are shifting expectations – on healthcare care in communities – in assisted living, long-term and home care. Following the global pandemic, a new respect developed for all the people who work in healthcare, with a new focus on frontline care – both in urban and rural communities.
A critical challenge facing healthcare providers is building a sustainable workforce, as many who currently serve in healthcare will be retiring this decade. This is a timeline challenge to attract, upskill and credential candidates.
