Health Workforce and Nurse Shortage

To the background of a great number of European initiatives, programs and projects on health workforce, planning, forecast, shortage, skills, education and others, and the urgency of the matter, ESNO organizes a 2-day event with stakeholders, private and public together with ESNO members, associates, discussing this issue together. Shortage and retention are a big issue and only waiting for long term changes is not an option.
It will be an interactive event on location in Brussels. It's not the intention, to establish a new program, but creating a platform to share insights and recommendation and discussing this with specialist nurses from all European regions themselves.

The event will also support current programs and projects and create opportunity to connect directly with specialist nurses and those in advanced roles and positions in in day-to-day clinical practice and often in combination in leading roles all over Europe. This will be an invited only event. The development of the program is in process but for more information or interest, contact the ESNO team secretariat@esno.org.

Day 1:

  • Setting the scene with presentation about programs, projects and insight, both national and European with sharing and exchange who is who.

Day 2:

  • After a short introduction, a recap, discussions will take place on themes in a ‘World Café’ structure ”Let’s talk” About World Café: ‘The World Cafe is a flexible, easy-to-use process for fostering collaborative dialogue, sharing mutual knowledge, and discovering new opportunities for action. Based on living systems thinking, this innovative approach creates dynamic networks of conversation that can catalyse an organization or community's own collective intelligence around its most important questions. A great benefit of this process is that all are equal and often speak on personal base and discussion are very inclusive and honest’ @WorldCafe.

Before the event, the invited participant will receive material to be well prepared and have already an idea what can be expects and who you might meet and find.

After the event, a report will be created with insights of participant, overview of programs and projects with outcome of discussions and recommendations for the clinical practice but also on higher level policy. This report will be launched during the ESNO congress 8 and 9 June and be sure you can make it for this special event as well.
