SEPEN HWF planning and policy repository

The main objective of the SEPEN Mapping Study on HWF planning and policy developments in the EU was to provide a general overview, a detailed description and an updated summary of the health workforce planning systems and policies in the 28 EU Member States. The mapping study is an essential tool for supporting evidence-based health workforce planning and policies across the EU.

The study now takes the form of an online e-book containing 28 country fiches. As the country fiches are brief to contain the rich references identified in the mapping exercise, each fiche is therefore connected to an online appendix on the SEPEN website.

Country fiches of each MS include a summary of the national planning system in place, an overview of data sources, and a prioritised selection of the top three current and future challenges. The fiches also include a summary of most policies in place related to health workforce. Finally, each fiche proposes infographics on the stock and flow of physicians, nurses and midwifes, and density maps highlighting the subnational variations.

The online appendices offer a list of the latest international publications, specific sources, data and statistics, as well as references to data providers and stakeholders involved in the planning process. As a special feature of the mapping study, the appendices also link the various legal policy references in national languages along with a summary in English.
