From the journal Public Health Forum

Zusammenfassung

Die Fachkräfteentwicklung im Gesundheitssystem hat in den letzten Jahren an Bedeutung gewonnen. Wesentliche Triebkräfte für Veränderungen sind die Konzepte der Weltgesundheitsorganisation und die Ziele für nachhaltige Entwicklung (SDGs) der Vereinten Nationen, die auf eine universale, bevölkerungsorientierte Versorgung zielen. Dieser Beitrag stellt internationale Konzepte für eine nachhaltige Fachkräfteentwicklung vor, diskutiert Entwicklungen und Herausforderungen an die Praxis in Europa und zeigt Zukunftsperspektiven auf.

Abstract

Change has been driven by the World Health Organisation and the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aiming to strengthen universal coverage and people-centred care. This article introduces international frameworks for a sustainable health workforce, discusses practice developments and challenges in Europe and highlights future perspectives.
