Human: Solving the global workforce crisis in healthcare

Mark Britnell

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, Mark Britnell presents a sharp analysis and criticism of current healthcare systems and argues that we need to change how healthcare workers are treated to encourage them to stay and develop within their profession. He points to the recent global OECD survey of students that found that a career in the health profession was ranked first, suggesting that young people want to become healthcare workers but are often deprived of the support they need to do their job. This chapter is about how we realize that potential—through education, training, teamwork, and technology—and harness the best we can from them as individuals and in teams.
