A special issue of Eurohealth marks the 20th anniversary of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and includes a chapter on developments in Europe's health workforce. The chapter on Europe's health workforce addresses the most alarming challenges in the region: 

  • the shrinking pool of potential health workers, 
  • the need for more investment in the health workforce, which undermines health system sustainability, and 
  • the proposal for nurses and other health professions to assume new and more sophisticated tasks and roles in times of workforce shortages.
