Webinar # 1

TITLE: Building a Healthcare Human Resource Database Index: 5 Not-So-Simple Steps

DATE: June 5 2014

TIME: 1:00pm-2:00pm (EDT)

DESCRIPTION: Healthcare human resources is a pressing issue yet effective analysis and planning is hampered by lack of data sources.  And while there are data resources available the sources represent a wide range of disciplines and are often unknown by researchers in other fields.  The goal of the Canadian Healthcare Human Resource Network database index is to fill the knowledge gap; it is to act as a resource for researchers, decision and policy makers, to enable  by directing  them to data and other information sources that might inform their work.  The objective of this webinar is to describe the steps taken and the work involved in creating the index.
