The meeting discussions built upon the results of the WHO EURO High-Level Meeting on Health and Care Workforce, held on March 22-23 in Bucharest.
The sessions focused on addressing the surging challenges faced in a rapidly changing political environment (workforce shortages and imbalances), migration and its impact on regulation alongside maximizing new opportunities for health offered by powerful enablers, like research and digitalization.
Dr Dasic participated in the first session 1: “Managing Recruitment and Retention of Nurses and Midwives in the WHO European Region” and reflected on the different strategies currently followed to prevent burnout among the workforce in the SEE Region.
For over a decade, SEEHN has ranked high mental health, placing it upfront on the agenda of the health ministries across the SEE region. Among other highlights Dr Dasic underlined the need for prioritizing healthcare workers well-being, through fostering teamwork and communication, and promoting resilience, for a better quality of care.
SEE Health Network remains committed to assisting its member states in this transformative process!
Congratulations to Romanian order of nurses and midwifes and Ministry of Health of Romania for the excellent organization of this event.
