About this book

This book on mobility of health professionals reviews, analyses and summarises published information and data as well as collected interview data from stake holders, including politicians, policy makers, health service managers and migrant health workers. It is based on the research carried out under the umbrella of the EU-funded project “Mobility of Health Professionals (MoHProf).

The partners involved in the MoHProf project gathered evidence from 25 countries around basic questions and knowledge gaps relating to the international migration of health professionals, which involved an analysis of migration flows and evaluation of policies addressing migration. This book provides a comprehensive description and analysis of the mobility streams, the motives and driving forces behind them and the impact on and challenges for health systems and draws conclusions and provides recommendations for future strategic planning, monitoring and the management of mobility of health professionals as well as further research and policy development needs.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book highlights the push-pull factors that impact or influence the migration of health workers. … the book appears to be aimed at students interested in health policy or workforce development on an international level, health professionals interested in migration and the impact on health outcomes, as well as politicians and heads of regional and national policy boards. … This book is an excellent example of workforce research at an international level that provides foundational knowledge for policy discussions and strategic workforce development plans.” (Carole Ann Kenner, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
