With health human resource (HHR) planning beginning to receive more attention from policy makers, it seems that now may be the time to move beyond the traditional approaches taken to it. Though well-intended, established planning methods have tended to be overly simplistic and narrow in focus; ignoring, for example, the often significant effects of changing health needs of the population and the productivity of the workforce providing care for those needs on the system. Reliance on such planning practices has sometimes resulted in short-sighted HHR policies that have had serious negative consequences for the health care system and the people who depend on it. At a time when health care systems can ill afford the burdens of uninformed health care planning policies, it is becoming more and more essential that policy makers begin to look beyond conventional methods of HHR planning. The session included discussion about the potential for improvement on such methods, the benefits of more comprehensive techniques, and demonstrated a general HHR planning simulation model developed that represents an important step forward in the illustration of key HHR planning concepts, and could be used to better inform future HHR policies.
