Call for Papers: Health Policy - A people-centred health workforce in Europe: how to make it happen?

A special edition of Health Policy (edited by Ellen Kuhlmann, Ronald Batenburg and Gilles Dussault) has announced a call for papers. The edition focuses on "A people-centred health workforce in Europe: how to make it happen".

The importance of a people-centred, sustainable and integrated health workforce is increasingly recognised in Europe. There are now comprehensive policy frameworks for action and better knowledge on what should be done to respond more effectively to changing population needs.

Health Policy will publish a Special Issue to contribute to the debate and develop sustainable solutions for a people-centred, sustainable and integrated future health workforce, to foster policy implementation and leadership, and to stimulate knowledge exchange in Europe and beyond. The objectives are:

  • to inform the policy debate by providing an overview of the evidence on health workforce issues and effective policy implementation;
  • to foster comparative research and the development of an integrative and trans-European approach sensitive to national and regional conditions;
  • to review how issues of policy, education, planning and management of human resources for health are currently addressed, and
  • to discuss how to identify leadership, supportive stakeholders and effective policy levers for the building of a people-centred workforce.
