The Center for Health Workforce Studies (CHWS) Survey

Lisa Volk and Tarrah Quinlan in Clinical & Quality

The Center for Health Workforce Studies (CHWS) at the School of Public Health, University at Albany monitors annual health care employment trends in the state of New York and issues a report of its findings each year. Our most recent report, The Health Care Workforce in New York, 2018-2019: Trends in the Supply and Demand for Health Workers can be found on our website at  . 

CHWS is conducting their annual survey to gather information on health workforce employment. The primary purpose of this brief survey is to better understand the current recruitment and retention problems faced by nursing homes and adult care facilities, including assisted living facilities. 

CHWS worked with LeadingAge, New York State Health Facility Association (NYSHFA), the New York Center for Assisted Living (NYSCAL), and Continuing Care Leadership Coalition to ensure that the questions asked in this survey reflect issues currently relevant to you.  

All individual answers are confidential and reported only in the aggregate, which means no personal or agency information will be reported.

CHWS would appreciate your response by January 15, 2021.
