Globalnews.ca-2018/3/30 (カナダ)

Some relief may be on the way for B.C. residents without a family doctor thanks to a new program involving nurses. Finding a family doctor in the Okanagan and around B.C. can be very challenging.

Recently the Central Okanagan became a testing ground for a new program funded by the Ministry of Health that involves nurses working in doctor's offices.


Bush doctor shortage in the spotlight, Turnbull government says
The Australian‎ - March 28, 2018 (オーストラリア)

While the number of medical graduates is increasing, there are serious challenges getting doctors into some areas and training programs for specialist positions. That has left Australia heavily reliant on overseas-trained doctors, while patients face long waits and high gap fees depending on where they live or what condition they have.
The Australian has learned the Department of Health has embarked on a new mapping project for GPs, separate to the District of Workforce Shortage measured used to determine, among other things, where overseas-trained doctors are allowed to work.


Employers Should Act Now to Deal With Looming Doctor Shortage
Inside INdiana Business‎ - Mar 28, 2018 (米国インディアナ州)

Today's healthcare landscape is changing rapidly, and it should come as no surprise that these changes are steadily impacting every single facet of the industry. From diagnostic tests to pharmaceutical costs to post-acute services, prices are steadily rising, and skilled workers are hard to come by.
Unfortunately, that worker shortage now includes primary care providers. In fact, there could be a shortage of up to 100,000 physicians by 2025, according to the American Colleges of Medicine. There are several factors contributing to this staggering shortage, including an increasingly competitive medical school application processes, regulations that cap the number of residency positions at hospitals, and an entire generation of providers aging out of practice faster than new physicians can enter.


Terrace doctor shortage getting worse
Upcoming resignations will push GP numbers below half of what’s needed
Terrace Standard‎ - Mar. 28, 2018 (カナダ ブリティッシュコロンビア州)

For now, Northern Health and local general practitioners are relying on signing up out-of-area doctors called locums working on short and long-term contracts to provide primary care. The most visible sign of the physician shortage is the daily early morning line up of people on the sidewalk outside of the Lazelle Ave. Medical Clinic who are hoping to see a doctor that day.
With the number of GPs now on the decline, there are more specialists than GPs in Terrace, a total of 15. A further 16 specialists now visit from elsewhere.


How a team approach may help curb nationwide doctor shortage
WCPO‎ - Mar 26, 2018 (米国 オハイオ州)

It used to be so simple: You made an appointment with a doctor and would almost certainly see an M.D., someone who spent four years in medical school and then had at least three years of additional training, usually in a hospital.
But today you're likely to encounter a veritable alphabet soup of healthcare degrees: D.O., P.A., N.P., R.N., and N.D., to name a few. Who are all these people? What training do they have? Which one is best for you? And where's your good old M.D., anyway ?
