Health Affairs, a division of Project Hope and the leading health policy journal in the U.S., is asking for Macy Foundation support to publish a thematic issue and briefing on “Creating the Optimal Health Care Work Force”.  The thematic issue will be a compendium of articles exploring the identification of work force priorities and related critical policy issues.  The briefing following the publication will be directed at policy makers and staff in Washington, DC with a particular focus on its relevance in relation to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  Companion articles also will be published in Academic Medicine and other relevant health professional journals.  The Macy Foundation will participate in the development of the publication and in the briefing.  Funding will also be provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and other professional associations.

This proposal supports our attempt to disseminate innovations in health professional education and to influence policy relevant to health professional education and work force development.
