On 6 and 7 February 2018, experts came together in Brussels for a workshop on Planning for health professions: how to act on skills needs.

The multidisciplinary group of participants comprising workforce planners, workforce strategists, health professions’ representatives, experts in education policy, national policy-makers, chronic disease patients’ organisations, and representatives of the OECD and European Commission, were invited to identify tools and approaches which integrate the skills dimension with health workforce planning processes. As a supporting case, the improvement of the skills of health professionals in communicating with chronic disease patients was selected.
