WP7 (Sustainability) consolidates the experience of the Joint Action on Health Workforce Planning and Forecasting in order to have a higher impact of health workforce planning and forecasting on policy decision making.
The sustainability plan is built on the basis of The Knoster model (it connects the symptom with the components of change). The main roles of the stakeholders’ group, the policy dialogues, the educational plans for transferring the knowledge and the indicators for monitoring the implementation are considered in the sustainability plan. The results of the Joint Action activities would enable the process of overcoming the gap between education and health employment. They would also lead to further development of common guidelines for recognition of diplomas and licenses from the different countries and establish training equivalency recognition. The outcomes of the JA could increase the understanding of global developments beyond the national strategies in order to plan and manage human resources for health in the EU internal market.
