The European Workforce for Health

25 February 2009 - 11:05am

The European Commission is consulting on how best the European health workforce can meet the challenges ahead

The European Commission has issued a Green Paper (consultation paper) on the European Workforce for Health.

The paper outlines a number of challenges facing health systems in Europe and starts a debate on the availability, mobility, financing and maximising the potential of the health workforce in Europe. This debate has been sparked by several key factors, including the ageing population; a shortage of younger healthcare professionals; and 'brain drain' - the movement of qualified professionals from east to west and from developing to developed countries.

The CSP will be feeding comments into the consultation via the European Region of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (ER-WCPT)
