TACKLING THE INDIANA LABORATORY WORKFORCE SHORTAGE
In mid 2018, the ASCLS released a position paper addressing the clinical laboratory workforce shortage. The paper outlines the reasons for the shortfall and its impact on the laboratory, patient care, and education. The task force charged with generating this paper also supported 14 possible actions to remedy the situation. Most are long-term solutions that, and if successful, will help ease the erosion of the profession nationwide.
Indiana, however, is in the danger zone now and needs to confront the issue immediately. Our state ranks third in the nation of having an aging workforce that will retire very soon.
ASCLS-IN has taken steps to address this problem by offering, administering, or providing information about scholarships for new students. Scholarships
