New policy brief on the efficiency and equity implications of health professional mobility in Europe

With intra-EU flows of health professionals on the increase, and growing disparities between member states of the European Union, this policy brief asks what the implications of health professional mobility are, for destinations, sources and the EU as a whole, and how the imperatives of freedom of movement can be reconciled with those of sustainable health workforce development.  The brief outlines concrete policy tools which decision makers can use to strengthen health workforce development domestically, to steer and manage mobility, and to take action at EU level - all with a view to making mobility work better.
