The healthcare workforce

This thematic series in Israel Journal of Health Policy Research considers the healthcare workforce. The physicians, nurses, and other professionals who provide direct patient care are vital to the success of the health care systems within which they operate. Accordingly, policymakers around the world are deeply concerned about such issues as whether they have enough professionals, whether they are being adequately trained and their skills used to the fullest, and whether they are appropriately distributed between and within countries. This article collection explores how these and related issues are playing out, both in Israel and internationally.
