Abstract
Behavioral healthcare is a critical subset of the overall healthcare delivery system in Alaska.Inadequate programs, services, and facilities limit the quality and access for people in need. Behavioral health resources such as workforce development, logistics, reimbursement, etc., must beaddressed in conjunction with programs, services, and facilities. This study addressed behavioral health service and facility needs for residents of rural Alaska--defined as all of Alaska except for the"urban areas" of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau.

Abstract
The health care industry is one of the largest employers in Alaska. Health care workers, ranging from physicians and administrators to public health workers and allied health professionals, are distributed across the state. For this project, allied health workers are defined as those professions and occupations that provide physical and behavioral health support in the health care field. The purpose of the Allied Health Workforce Assessment is to determine the current and projected training needs of the Alaskan allied health workforce. This information will enable the University of Alaska to plan future training programs in the health care field. This assessment took a "snapshot view" of the Alaskan allied health workforce in terms of number of employees, vacancies, annual turnover, projected future needs and recruitment difficulties ? to determine the areas of greatest need. It also collected qualitative information regarding training needs, cross training, general trends and suggestions to the University of Alaska for planning health related coursework and programs. Working in collaboration with staff and representatives of health care industry organizations, Project Team members developed a data collection instrument and generated a list of 74 occupations in October 2000. Pilot surveys were conducted in four sites across the state during November 2000. Based on feedback from these pilots, the survey instrument was revised and finalized.

Abstract
The University of Alaska (UA) system convened a meeting of educators from disciplines spanning the behavioral health field to discuss how they can most effectively address workforce shortages, especially in rural areas. Despite a number of productive efforts in the UA system to develop an effective workforce that is trained in rural behavioral health, educators in Alaska see that more work needs to be done and are committed to formalizing workforce development activities that ensure the needs of Alaskans are met. In order to create a clear path toward achieving the development of an adequate and effective behavioral health workforce, UA educators, in collaboration with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Mental Health Program, have been researching relevant issues facing Alaska. What follows is a summary of relevant concerns and data in several areas, including 1) the national context of rural behavioral health shortages, 2) Alaska workforce data, 3) occupational and population projections in Alaska, 4) trends in UA behavioral health programs regarding enrollment and degrees awarded, and 5) recommendations for developing the behavioral health workforce.

Abstract
In 2002, the Alaska Legislature passed SJR44 which requests that state and federal agencies work together to develop a joint research and development plan to help expand and diversify Alaska's economy, strengthen and maintain state research institutions, and protect the health of Alaskans and the environment of Alaska. The University of Alaska (UA) is taking the lead in coordinating the development of the state's health and welfare research agenda. Over the next few months, the UA's Health Research Task Force will work with representatives of state and federal agencies to identify research priorities and to develop and present a plan to the Legislature. Planning efforts will focus on the greatest threats to the health and welfare of Alaskans, as well as other issues/areas that will attract the best researchers. Planning efforts will focus on the greatest threats to the health and welfare of Alaskans, as well as other issues/areas that will attract the best researchers.
