Study of Impacts of COVID-19 on the Health Workforce of States

Working in collaboration with George Washington University, HWTAC will conduct key informant interviews to learn more about state-specific strategies to expand their health workforce in response to COVID-19 as well as the extent to which health workers in some settings were furloughed during the pandemic as access to basic health services was ‘paused’. Products for this work may include up to 2 manuscripts/reports focused on the surge and flex workforce expansion strategies undertaken by states and the extent to which health worker furloughs occurred at the height of the pandemic that resulted from ‘pausing’ some routine health services.
