No Comments on Specialty Profile: Recruitment and Retention in the Health Sciences 16
This month’s specialty profile on Recruitment and Retention in the Health Sciences represents Issue 3 of Volume 3 of Doody’s Special Topics Lists.
Through working with clinical and academic health professionals, health sciences librarians bear unique witness to the challenges of attracting, training, and retaining a dynamic healthcare workforce.
From growing and aging populations to the rapid evolution of technology, health care has never needed a more abundant and astute workforce. But while the healthcare job market may continue to grow, maintaining those jobs is another story. The COVID-19 pandemic exposed many flaws in contemporary work culture, and no sector was shaken more than the healthcare landscape. As essential laborers in one of the most tumultuous times in modern history, healthcare workers faced one of the sharpest declines in employee retention. Health professionals’ stress and compromised well-being, along with a greater-than-ever focus on diversity and equity among healthcare organizations, demand that health sciences libraries meet the information needs of stakeholders invested in solving urgent and complex human resource issues.
Many factors contribute to the challenges of maintaining a healthy, sustainable, and diverse healthcare workforce pipeline, so the List Selectors have handpicked titles from vast and varied disciplines for this Doody’s Special Topics List.
This Doody’s Special Topics List is comprised of 59 titles collected from 22 publishers. The prices of these titles range from $0 to $265, with an average cost of $74.33.
In addition to the list itself, the List Selectors are pleased to offer the health information community a selected bibliography of additional non-book resources that may be useful to librarians looking to dive into this topic further. Readers may access the list by using the link below:
