English

Human resources for health are key determinants of health system performance. They represent, however, the largest and most expensive input into health care and are particularly challenging to develop. This book examines some of the major problems facing health care professionals in Europe and the best solutions for dealing with these.

The book analyses how current regulatory processes and practices may facilitate or inhibit the development of effective responses to challenges facing health care systems in the field of personnel. The authors also identify which strategies are most likely to lead to the optimal management of health professionals in the future.

Human Resources for Health in Europe is key reading for health policymakers and postgraduates taking courses in health services management, health policy and health economics. It is also of interest to human resources professionals.
