Washington State’s Pharmacist Workforce through 2020: Influential Factors and Available Data



    Description:

    This study examined Washington’s pharmacist supply and demand from 2000 through 2020. Readily available literature and data permited an extremely limited analysis of trends in pharmacist supply and demand, and the projections are presented as a basis for discussion and critique. The limitations confronting workforce planning and the possibilities for improving the data and understanding of the field are presented. This 2004 study was funded by HRSA’s National Center for Health Workforce Analysis through a Congressional Appropriation to the UW CHWS.
