Description & Coverage
Description:

While many countries enjoy the benefits of modern healthcare systems and social and economic policies that improve life expectancy, many countries still have high maternal and infant mortality rates, struggle with infectious diseases, and face critical human resource shortages in healthcare.

Human Resources in Healthcare, Health Informatics and Healthcare Systems addresses two major problems that threaten the health of the human race. The first of which is the lack of human resources in healthcare. We need to ensure that we have an adequate number of healthcare professionals who are highly motivated and properly trained. Furthermore, we need to ensure that they have the latest health technology at their disposal, which is the second major issue facing the world today. The world’s most respected scholars and practitioners describe their experiences and propose possible theoretical and practical solutions in this relevant and timely handbook.

Reviews & Statements

All authors have done a formidable job in describing, analyzing, and presenting these real-life examples and in helping the reader have a better view of challenges met and often faced successfully by colleagues across the globe. These authors have shown incredible prescience and skills in having us time-travel to imagine what the future of healthcare could be like. In the cross roads of human behavior and the newest technology and their troubled waters, they are helping us to navigate and reach the shores.
