Summary

By 2030, the world will be short of approximately 15 million health workers - a fifth of the workforce needed to keep healthcare systems going. Global healthcare leader and award-winning author, Dr. Mark Britnell, uses his unique insights from advising governments, executives, and clinicians in more than 70 countries to present solutions to this impending crisis.   

Human: Solving the Global Workforce Crisis in Healthcare calls for a reframing of the global debate about health and national wealth, and invites us to deal with this problem in new and adaptive ways that drive economic and human prosperity. Harnessing technology, it asks us to reimagine new models of care and levels of workforce agility.   

Drawing on experiences ranging from the world's most advanced hospitals to revolutionary new approaches in India and Africa, Dr. Mark Britnell makes it clear what works - and what does not. Short and concise, this book gives a truly global perspective on the fundamental workforce issues facing health systems today.

Great book spoiled by poor narration

A frustrating experience listening to this audiobook. The author is very knowledgable and writes very well. But this is spoiled by the robotic narration which lacks the natural cadence and flow of normal speech.

Interesting Observations, Few Solutiins

The authors global experience makes this a good primer for health care policy. However the lack of focus compromises its ability to present useful solutions.
