New book: Health professional mobility in a changing Europe

Health professional mobility in Europe has become a fast-moving target for policy-makers. It is evolving rapidly in direction and magnitude as a consequence of fundamental changes caused by European Union (EU) enlargement and the financial and economic crisis.  The 14 thematic chapters deal with the changing dynamics of health professional mobility, the mobile individual and the policy responses in a changing Europe.

The book goes well beyond situation analysis as it presents practical tools such as a yardstick for registry methodology, a typology of mobile individuals, qualitative tools for studying the motivation of the workforce and a set of concrete policy responses at EU, national and organizational level, including bilateral agreements, codes and workplace responses.
