Health Workforce Concerns
  • ?Changing healthcare needs of the population
  • ?Current and projected shortages in the
    healthcare workforce
  • ?Chronic maldistribution of the workforce -
    number of rural and urban underserved areas
  • ?Limited access of students from minority and
    rural backgrounds to health professions careers

Initial Statewide Efforts
  • April 2000 -
  • Formation of Health Care Workforce Coalition
  • joint project of WHA, AHEC and many other
  • April 2002 -
  • WTCS organized conference
  • Taking Action! Creating Healthcare Workforce
  • Spring 2003 -
  • Formation of Governors Select Committee for
    HealthCare Workforce Development

Initial Statewide Efforts
  • Health Care Workforce Coalition
  • early conversations about actions needed to
    address anticipated shortages
  • initial focus on health careers
    recruitment/pipeline, career ladders,
    apprenticeship programs and longterm care needs
  • quickly found major roadblock - limited capacity
    of training programs to expand, in part due to
    need for clinical placements
  • WTCS activities
  • standardization of health professions curricula
    and pre-requisites across campuses,
    transferability of courses, development of
    on-line options, expansion of facilities and use
    of sophisticated patient simulators

Academic Program Initiatives
  • support for health careers activities and
    pipeline programs in underserved areas and
  • several grant-funded projects focused on
    increasing the number of masters-prepared nurses
    available to teach in the health professions
    programs, especially nursing
  • NET
  • LEAP
  • Other grant-funded initiatives to develop
    capacity of community-based sites and providers -
    to provide learning opportunities for health
    professions students

Regional Efforts
  • Development of regional collaborations under
    leadership of several different groups
  • Regional AHECs and academic partners
  • health careers
  • continued effort to develop new community-based
    training sites
  • Local Workforce Boards giving increasing
    attention to health workforce issues
  • Fox Valley Health Care Alliance
  • La Crosse Health Science Consortium

Current Status
  • Diminishing federal grant resources available to
    academic programs to address healthcare workforce
    issues (Title VII Health Professions funding)
  • Increasing appreciation of
  • the challenge posed by current and impending
    health workforce shortages
  • the need for a collaborative, regionally-focused
    approach with broad external statewide support to
    get the job done
  • Must expand capacity for clinical placement

Clinical Placement
  • What are clinical placements?
  • Coursework involving hands-on, direct care or
  • experience and evaluation of the students
  • variously referred to as
  • Clinical
  • Clinical rotation
  • Clerkship
  • Fieldwork experience
  • Community placement
  • Practicum
  • Internship

Clinical Placement
  • Why are clinical placements so important?
  • Couldnt we fill the need through expanded use of
    manikins, clinical simulators and standardized
  • Students need experiences outside the formal
    classroom, in community and patient care settings
    under the supervision of skilled practitioners,
    to develop their critical thinking and clinical
    judgment skills and learn to use those skills in
    a dynamic work environment.

Clinical Placement
  • What kind of students?
  • Technical college associate degree and technical
    training programs
  • Undergraduate health professions degree programs
  • Advanced degree programs
  • What fields?

Clinical Placement
  • What kind of facilities?
  • direct patient care (inpatient or ambulatory)
  • technical and support services such
    as pharmacy radiology dietetics social
  • long-term care facilities
  • mental health facilities
  • hospice
  • home health
  • other community agencies
  • schools and public health agencies

Clinical Placement
  • How scheduled?
  • Time blocks of 2 hours to a full day
  • A few days a week, integrated into a general
    education curriculum and a regular campus course
  • or
  • A full-time block of several weeks when students
    may be engaged in the field experience full time

Clinical Placement
  • Who teaches and supervises the students?
  • faculty from the academic program who accompany
    students to the site
  • or
  • staff at the clinical site in consultation with a
    faculty clerkship director who makes occasional
    site visits
  • On-site staff are often called preceptors,
  • or community faculty and may have volunteer
  • appointments with the academic program.

Clinical Placement
  • What are the expectations of the student?
  • The student may be merely observing, or may be
    participating directly in patient care or service
  • The independence expected of the student in
    carrying out assigned tasks evolves as the
    students training progresses.
  • Sites and preceptors must be prepared to evaluate
    the students progress and permit increasing
    responsibility appropriate to the students level
    of development.

Focus on Nursing
  • Summer of 2006 survey of health professions
    programs indicated a need for more clinical
    placements in many disciplines.
  • Why initial focus on nursing?
  • nursing shortage affects so many different care
    settings and agencies
  • training site requirements so varied within just
    one discipline
  • expectation that lessons learned and regional
    collaborations developed will speed efforts for
    other disciplines.

Nursing Curriculum
  • Diverse curricula, but in general
  • ADN and BSN students need 4-5 clinical placements
    - at least one every semester (except BSN
    sophomore entry programs).
  • One clinical placement may involve scheduling
    experience for the student on more than one
    service within a facility.
  • Students spend from 12-24 hours per week at the
    clinical site, in 2-6 hour blocks of time.
  • PN, first year ADN and junior year BSN students
    are taught in groups of 8, usually by a faculty
    member who travels with the students to the site.
  • Second year ADN and most senior year BSN programs
    use preceptors on site for one of the clinicals.
    The transition or practicum experiences
    provide a 11 relationship of student to
    preceptor, and an opportunity for the student to
    exercise more independence.

Nursing Clinical Placements Needed
  • Core clinical skills
  • Hospitals
  • Long term care facilities
  • Community health and service learning
  • Public health
  • Community agencies
  • Other
  • School health clinics
  • Mental health facilities

Challenges for Nursing Programs in
Arranging Clinical Placements
  • Will the patient or client mix at the site meet
    the needs of the specific component of the
    training program for which a training site is
  • Is the site able to provide space for students to
    meet as a group? Will students be able to access
    computers and on-line information resources at
    the site if needed?
  • Are there staff at the site qualified to
    teach/precept/supervise students? Can they get
    release-time for preceptor development
  • Is housing available on-site if students will be
    there full time and must travel a distance to the
  • Does the site understand the role of the student
    as learner, not as an extension of the workforce?
  • Does the site understand its obligation to
    provide emergency care for students who become
    ill or are injured?
  • What are the requirements of the partnership
    agencies regarding documenting students,
    affiliation agreements, and risk management,
    liability and malpractice issues?

Challenges for Healthcare Organizations and
  • Meeting the needs of different occupations,
    educational programs and levels of student.
  • Assuring that the patient to student ratio is
    acceptable and that patients are agreeable to
    student-delivered/observed care.
  • Establishing and verifying both school and
    facility expectations regarding staff role with
  • Coping with the lack of standardization in record
    keeping processes and expectations among the
    educational programs.
  • Providing clinical time around academic program
  • Clarifying risk management/liability and all
    other variables relating to the relationship.
  • Educating managers and staff regarding their own
    responsibilities, school expectations and student
  • Small or specialty units and facilities far
    removed from the school location may have
    additional special issues to address.

  • lack of trained community preceptors with time to
  • barriers of time and distance for students and
  • limited scheduling flexibility
  • lack of classroom space and equipment for
    students at smaller facilities
  • administrative burden on smaller facilities
    without an education coordinator
  • some academic programs are proprietary about
  • unwillingness to change from the way we have
    always done things

  • Opportunity to explore these challenges in our
    regional discussions over lunch

Clinical Placement Efforts of the FVHCA
  • From an October 2006 FVHCA Clinical Placement
    Summit, the three top issues surrounding clinical
    placements, were identified by attendees.
  • They centered around the areas of
  • 1) Preceptors
  • Uniformity/Standardization
  • 3) The vast number of clinical placement
    requests (most wanting the same time/place)

Three workgroups were formed for each issue and
brainstorming started immediately!
  • During the next 6-9 months, the Preceptor
    Committee (1) will focus their efforts on
  • Preceptor education (What is a preceptor? What
    qualities/skills should someone have? How do we
    promote/market being a preceptor?)
  • Uniform evaluation (of preceptors and of the
    entire experience, so preceptors have a voice)
  • Recognition (reward system, what would a
    preceptor appreciate as a token of thanks?
    Luncheon? Preceptor of the year? Pin for
    nametag? Gift certificates?)

Uniformity/Standardization committees (2) areas
of concentration
  • A Universal/Uniform orientation across area
  • Development of a Skills Checklist (For precepted
    experiences, will help everyone know what a
    student can really do)
  • Consistency in what area facilities require from
    students (paperwork, healthcare requirements,
  • Development of a concise, collaborative process
    of how to submit and request a clinical.

And finally, the Clinical Placement subcommittee
(3) will work on
  • Researching innovative clinical placement models
    that promote thinking outside the box.
  • Data gathering (Need to know what schools and
    healthcare facilities want/need/already do/can do
    to identify matches and mismatches)
  • Securing funding for possible projects
  • Simulation center for all to share
  • On-line clinical placement system

Each workgroup meets 1-2 times before each full
FVHCA meeting and reports on its progress, while
also asking for input/ suggestions from all
A Partial List of Successes to date
Development of FVHCA website www.fvhca.org
Job shadow requirements/paperwork has been
standardized with major healthcare systems
involved. Healthcare requirements have been
standardized. Criminal background check group
has been formed as a resource for schools.
