This online event will be hosted under the framework of the European Parliament’s Interest Group on Innovation in Health and Social Care and its co-chair MEP Istvan Ujhelyi (S&D, Hungary) on 22 September 2022, from 10:00 to 12:00 CET.
Appropriately qualified and skilled healthcare professionals are key to building and strengthening resilient health systems that can react to and cope with 21st century challenges such as the green and digital transition, workforce shortages, ageing societies, and a raising number of non-communicable diseases, just to mention a few. Healthcare professionals can make the systems achieve the highest attainable standards of health, improve health service coverage, and help make communities more resilient against health system shocks. The health workforce also plays an important role in contributing to the preparedness and response to emergencies, such as governments’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and disasters, in particular through participation in national health emergency management systems, local leadership and the provision of health services.
The European Health Management Association (EHMA) and Health First Europe are pleased to invite you to the launch event of the Policy Paper on essential skills for a resilient and effective European health workforce, developed by the EU Health Policy Platform Stakeholder Network on Profiling and Training the Healthcare Workers of the Future’.
