Changing patterns of health and illness with growing multi-morbidity and ageing societies create new demand for health and social care services and professional competences. Creating a sustainable and people-centred health workforce is increasingly recognised in Europe and globally as being key to adapting changing health systems. This session assesses four areas of research that explore how to make a future health workforce occur that is both sustainable and adaptive.
