Forecasting Future Workforce Demand: A Process Evaluation – Nursing Health Services Research Unit [Canada] – April 2010

Health Human Resource Series Number 22

“Funded by the Nursing Secretariat, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the Forecasting Workforce Demand Project is a demonstration of health human resources (HHR) planning. This study focuses on the implementation and evaluation of the Forecasting Future Workforce Demand Tool developed by The Advisory Board Company. It was expected that implementation of the Tool would enable hospitals to enter historical workforce data to create one- to-five-year forecasts for proactive HHR planning and strategy development. The participant organizations consisted of five hospitals: three teaching, one community, and one rehabilitation and complex continuing care. The organizations and the Ontario Hospital Association sought to address a gap in the provincial healthcare system and contribute to strategic HHR planning. Key findings include the approach to HR planning varied across organizations, it takes time to collect and enter data into the data elements, and standardized definitions are critical to accuracy and applicability. Another key finding was that organizations vary in how they store data and code employees.”
