Topic Overview:

Two years ago at the AOHP National Conference in Las Vegas, Ken Scott from the Mountain and Plains ERC introduced AOHP members to some of the issues that will arise as the U.S. healthcare workforce ages. In this presentation, AOHP members will see what he and his colleagues have developed since the last AOHP session on the aging workforce. The presentation will introduce participants to the following resources:

1)      A research study, published in the AOHP Journal, that analyzed how patterns of occupational injuries in private U.S. hospitals change as healthcare workers age. 

2)      Digital stories developed by aging nurses that dig deeper and reach more broadly than statistics and numbers alone.

3)      An online train-the-trainer program to help occupational health professionals in healthcare educate their organizations about the aging workforce and its constellation of issues, challenges and opportunities.



  1. Review research published in the AOHP Journal on occupational injuries and age.
  2. Discuss the digital storytelling approach, and view digital stories developed by aging nurses.
  3. Identify a new online train-the-trainer program that integrates dynamic videos with digital stories to prepare organizations for an aging workforce.
