BC doctor shortage about to get worse as more physicians reach (カナダ)

It is a constant refrain across B.C.'s health care system: too many people end up in an emergency room or a walk-in clinic because they don't have family doctors. About 15 per cent of British Columbians don't have access to a regular family physician and a new report published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests the problem will only get worse as a wave of physicians near retirement age. “About 40 per cent of physicians are over age 55 so we are looking at quite a large number that could be retiring in the next few years based on the study that we did,” Lindsay Hedden of UBC’s School of Population and Public Health said.

Doctor shortage dented, but report says still more funding needed in Florida
Naples Daily News-2017/12/14 (米国フロリダ州)

Florida's teaching hospitals are making progress against a widespread physician shortage by creating more residency positions, but population growth will outpace the gains without additional funding, according to industry leaders. In a report released Wednesday by the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida, 1,113 new residency slots were created as a result of the Florida Legislature investing in 2013 in expanding graduate medical education. The funding resulted in a 29 percent boost from 3,896 residency positions in 2013. There are 5,009 full-time residency positions this year, the alliance’s report says. The research was done in collaboration with the Teaching Hospital Council of Florida.

BC doctor shortage to worsen as more physicians near retirement: study
CTV News-2017/12/11 (カナダ)

The prognosis is bleak for those British Columbians searching for a family physician amid the province's doctor drought.
A new study out of the University of British Columbia suggests B.C.'s serious shortage of doctors is only going to get worse.
The study determined that the average age of retirement for doctors in B.C. is 65 years old – and 40 per cent of practicing physicians are at or are approaching that age.

Doctor Shortage Seen Ongoing, But For Nurses, Not So Much
MedPage Today-2017/12/08 (米国)

WASHINGTON -- The physician shortage may be continuing apace, but when it comes to nurses, the healthcare system might be training too many, Tim Dall, managing director for healthcare at IHS Markit, a market research firm, said Friday.
Under various scenarios that Dall and his colleagues modeled for the future, "demand for physicians is above supply; that leads us to believe over time, there will be a growing shortfall of physicians at the national level, which will tend to exacerbate problems at the local level," Dall said at a briefing here on the delivery system and the healthcare workforce sponsored by the Alliance for Health Policy.

OPINION: Health authority committed to solving physician shortage

The concern over access to primary care in our province is top of mind for Nova Scotians. Addressing that problem is the key priority for us at the Nova Scotia health authority.
Those who are without a primary care provider, such as a doctor or nurse practitioner, and those who do have a family practice but wait too long to be seen, are understandably worried.
So are we. It's a problem we've been working to solve from Day 1 of our organization. The approach has evolved in that time, but we’d like to speak about the key pieces.
