Europe is facing urgent and significant challenges in maintaining sufficient standards of quality in healthcare. We discussed the increasing shortage of healthcare staff throughout Europe, as well as the high turnover of healthcare staff leaving the sector to continue their careers in different types of jobs and the growing percentage of occupational health-related disorders reported among healthcare staff (e.g. burnout, depression etc.) during an EAOHP “Healthy Healtcare” Small Group Meeting in March. Moreover, due to an aging workforce, more and more healthcare staff are expected to go to retirement. All of this has led to more and more healthcare employers searching for creative solutions to maintain and retain enough staff at work.
