Purpose: The demand for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) is significantly increased in the past 3 years. It is vital to assess factors influencing the trends in the supply and demand when determining future demands for CRNAs. This study developed models to forecast future projections in the CRNA workforce.

Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: Literature supports estimating supply and demand of providers by using the production function of surgical procedures and community characteristics. Using this theoretical framework the study design included several data sources to comprehensively study supply and demand of CRNAs.

Subjects: Survey responses from hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, CRNA membership survey data, and Census Bureau data is used to estimate production and demand for surgeries.

Methods: A systematic review of characteristics of patient populations, surgical volume and hospital and ambulatory supply and demand information was obtained. The integration of multiple data sources is used to develop models of supply and demand of CRNAs.

Results: The supply of CRNAs has increased in recent years. The number of student nurse anesthetists entering the market is greater than ever before. However, the increase of CRNAs entering the market has not been enough to offset the number of CRNAs reaching retirement, the increased production of surgical procedures and changes in population's health. These models have the capability to project future trends of the CRNA workforce.

Conclusions: The supply and demand of CRNAs is influenced by changes in population and health care delivery system. Using models to forecast practice patterns, educational trends, organizational and community factors are important in projecting the future supply and demand for CRNAs. [Poster Presentation]
