Description

By 2030, the world will be short of approximately 15 million health workers - a fifth of the workforce needed to keep healthcare systems going. Global healthcare leader and award-winning author, Dr Mark Britnell, uses his unique insights from advising governments, executives, and clinicians in more than 70 countries, to present solutions to this impending crisis.

Human: Solving the Global Workforce Crisis in Healthcare, calls for a reframing of the global debate about health and national wealth, and invites us to deal with this problem in new and adaptive ways that drive economic and human prosperity. Harnessing technology, it asks us to reimagine new models of care and levels of workforce agility.

Drawing on experiences ranging from the world's most advanced hospitals to revolutionary new approaches in India and Africa, Dr Mark Britnell makes it clear what works - and what does not. Short and concise, this book gives a truly global perspective on the fundamental workforce issues facing health systems today.

Review

"A book that brings into sharp relief the major challenge facing healthcare systems across the globe, workforce shortage. This book could not have been written at more pertinent time ... beautifully crafted and written." - Ibadete Fetahu, Nursing Times

"There is just so much to take away from [this book], it is well researched and written in an accessible format providing bite-sized chapters that can be easy to digest when needed ... This is a kind of Chicken Soup for the Soul book, inspirational and bringing stories of real lives to the pages associated with the global workforce. I can guarantee you will have a 'aha' moment and you be heard muttering to yourself 'that makes so much sense'." - Ian Peate, Independent Nurse
