  • Description
    "This article proposes a modelling framework to simulate and assess the immediate and long-term effects of policy interventions to attract and retain nurses in rural areas. Specifically, we use a Markov model to model the dynamics of movements of health care workers in a professional labour market. A model is developed to simulate the movements of South African nurses between different segments of the labour market over time." (extract from abstract)
