European Health Parliament
The 2018 edition of the European Health Parliament (EHP) has confirm that one of its priorities will be the health workforce. The Health Workforce Planning Committee are working on recommendations that aim to create a greater uptake of digital skills, soft skills and interprofessional education in healthcare training in Europe, both on undergraduate as postgraduate level.
The EHP is a platform of young European citizens with diverse backgrounds. With the aim of shaping the future of healthcare in Europe, participants are working together over 6 months to develop political solutions around specific topics like HWP. The objective is to deliver policy-oriented recommendations that can be implemented by the European Commission or any other national government as a possible legislative proposal. More information about EHP can be found by clicking here.The Health Workforce Planning Committee are interested in hearing from INHWE members about their experiences and efforts in advocating for a greater uptake of digital skills, soft skills and interprofessional education in healthcare training, both on national as well as on a European level. More specifically, they would be interested in understanding what policy frameworks exist which aim to address these issues.
