  • Description
    [Excerpt from Publisher] A new report by CPRN calls for provincial governments to take a closer look at the way they hire doctors, nurses and other health professionals from developing countries. Canada has always relied on newcomers to help deal with shortages in this field, but increasingly these professionals are coming from developing countries, especially from Africa and Asia, which have staffing shortages and critical health problems of their own. The report, The Ethical Recruitment of Internationally Educated Health Professionals: Lessons from Abroad and Options for Canada, looks at how other countries are handling the issue, examines the views of key players and outlines some first steps for Canada's provinces to begin the process of developing a code of practice or series of guidelines.
