Snapshot of the State of Healthcare Training in 2016

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Developing the skills and knowledge of workers is front of mind for many healthcare employers as they face talent shortages and high turnover. And skills development is increasingly important as the critical services and responsibilities of healthcare teams expand in volume and scope. To keep pace with that expansion, healthcare organizations—from small, community-based facilities that deliver outpatient services, to acute care hospitals with thousands of employees—are investing in training.

To delve deeper into current trends in healthcare training, ATD Research partnered with Relias Learning. The results of ATD and Relias’ survey of 123 healthcare facilities in the United States provide a comprehensive snapshot of training activities, efficiencies, and expenditures across today’s rapidly changing, highly-regulated healthcare industry. For a snapshot of the findings, check out the infographic below. The complete findings from this research are available in the full report, The State of Healthcare Training.
