The Role of Health Care Professionals Today and in Decades to Come

Pursuing any career that’s related to the health care industry is one of the best ways to land a lucrative job position today and will continue to be so in years to come. The demand for nurses, therapists. doctors, aides etc. has been steadily rising which can be attributed to several factors like:

The Maturity of the Baby Boomers Generation

As more of the so-called Baby Boomers who are into or about to enter their senior years go through the physical, mental and emotional challenges of ageing, the need for regular and long-term elderly care services will continue to grow. That need, in return, will steadily fuel the demand for more physical therapists, private nurses, caregivers and other health professions that specifically deal with aging patients.

Additionally, as members of the health industry who are themselves Baby Boomers eventually retire, the void in the medical profession widens. The younger generations will have to fill this void to avoid a shortage in health care professionals crucial to the community as a whole.

Technological Improvements

The numerous technological innovations in the health industry paved the way for more accurate diagnosis and newer treatment options to almost all the medical conditions afflicting millions of people today. As more discoveries and innovations emerge in years to come, demand for health care workers that are capable of administering and operating these innovations will emerge.

Longer Lives

Our collective quality of life is much improved as compared to a decade ago, much so that it increased our average lifespan.  The additional years equate to an extra need for health care professionals services which will open up more opportunities in the health care field.

It’s important to understand that the health care industry plays a very critical part in our society.  It will continue to be so as long as human civilization exists. Becoming an active member in this industry as a nurse, a therapist, a doctor, a radiologists, etc. is not only financially rewarding, it’s also one of the most fulfilling profession there is.

    Regarding this article, I think this a reality right now especially in countries who’s aging population is bigger, like Japan. The demand is there but I think there is not enough health workers that are willing to do the job because sometimes it gets to be a little bit difficult but this is where the new tecnology come in handy because it helps in making the job easier and as a result, health worker can offer a better service. In the end, we will always need health care professionals because all humans tend to become sick and age.

  2. Martine says:

    A job in the healthcare industry equates to stability. There may be advances in technology, but unlike in the manufacturing sector where the workforce has been replaced by robots, human intervention is very much needed to operate new machines. An ageing population needs young people to take care of them. The government has to do something to make healthcare education affordable and attractive.

    Note: Please edit the article. The first six paragraphs have been repeated to make the article appear long. Thanks!

    As people retire medical care becomes more needed. I think becoming a nurse is very fulfilling as you said, getting money for it must be a good plus. But seeing people get better or become in less pain, that’s the real reward.

  4. Georgina says:

    I plan to become a nurse but it’s very expensive to get a bachelor’s degree. Right now I am volunteering at a facility in our community taking care of old people. Oh they are a joy to work with! Somebody told me that just like doctors, nurses too can focus on a particular field. Geriatric nursing is what I wanna do.

  5. Elena Torres says:

    Hello, I think your article has repeated some paragraphs. Anywho… this is a reality Baby Boomers have to face now, they’re getting old and elder care has to be thought of as you age, always one step ahead to make sure you can get all the care you need. Medical attention is not a suggestion but a requirement.

    The response of the global world to health care-givers is very overwhelming. When this started, it was not this acceptable. But as we go living our lives through the years, it is more likely that people get to appreciate the existence of these health care-givers. To face the busy life each day is already hard enough what more if we have to tend to an elderly or ill member of the family. But with these medical expertise knocking at our door, one can only welcome with open arms. The birth of the medical technology to help these professionals do their job more efficiently is very helpful and needed and timely. With vast explosion of unmanaged cases of health problems, technologies can lessen the time and the workload to hasten the resullt of the tests if not the medication.

  7. Karina Rios Alvarado says:

    I totally agree on the fact that the demand for Health Care Professionals is increasing, not only due to the fact that older generations need assistance for a better quiality of life, but nowadays also younger generations need help for the hectic lives we lead. We have to deal with many things at a time, there’s pollution, traffic, accidents. We need Health Care to cope withe stress, dieting, exercise and unexpected problems that arise everyday. With no health we could we do liitle or nothing, so it’s a very important area in our lives.

  8. Isabelle says:

    Hi! First of all, I agree with them..you might want to check on the article, the paragraphs were repeated. Anyway, I think, as long as there is life, there will always be a demand on health care professionals. I mean, it can’t just be anybody. That’s why they’re called “professionals” to begin with.

  9. Dhruv says:

    Yeah, the life expectancy keeps growing. So, it’s obvious that there would more and more people in their old age that need care. So, definitely it will increase the demand for health professionals.

  10. Jon Tan says:

    Unless humans evolve or mutate into beings that are immune to the elements and adverse effects of other organisms, the need for health care professionals will never cease. Our longevity is dependent on the development of the people in this profession.

Obviously the need for trained professionals in health care is at its peak. Hence will prove to be the better options for career.

    “The younger generations will have to fill this void to avoid a shortage in health care professionals crucial to the community as a whole.” I agreed so. What I think that, when the youth pursue professional career, they might think about the demand of those market.

    I always adore all healthcare professionals because doing that kind of job is not that easy. Through your help, you give others longer life. Keep doing that wonderful deeds!

    I’ve always dream to be a Doctor. I’m on my way to med school after finishing my Nursing degree and passing the board exam. I know it is not an easy job. I know I’ll carry a big weight on my shoulders, taking care of the sick and all that.

  15. kyrie says:

    Health care professionals have a great role in the community. I am a Nurse in the Philippines. But i don’t think the government here sees that greatness for more and more nurses are unemployed each year.

  16. Sam says:

    This may sound weird but I’ve always wanted to be a caregiver. Instead I became a banker. Could be time to start thinking about switching careers and do something personally fulfilling for a change.

  17. Nicole says:

    I think I might just bite the bullet and take up some courses on caregiving so that I can take care of my own mother as I am a housewife. And then have these skills to use for career advancement in the future.
