Position Papers

The ASHHRA Advocacy Committee meets regularly to discuss issues that impact the health care workforce.  The Committee also convenes once a year on Capitol Hill to meet with senators, representatives and regulators to share the important health care viewpoint on relevant issues.

Position Papers are created as collateral for these meetings and offer a snap-shot perspective of the issues we are tracking and the positions we are advocating for. These papers may be used for anyone engaging their legislators in an advocacy capacity.
