PDF to download E.B. APPROVED (04.06.2014)
This document contains the results of a shared process involving thirty-seven EU partners of the Joint Action EUHWF (European member states as well as stakeholder organisations).
These results are a consensus recommendation on the key planning indicators and the related minimum set of data that may be adopted by the EU Member States as a common necessary tool kit to provide basic forecasting and enable a basic planning process to take place.
A future release of this paper will address the recommendations for the necessary data set and indicators needed to draw future enhanced scenarios.

The Handbook on Health Workforce Planning Methodologies aims to furnish a useful contribution to all those who are engaged in the development and improvement of HWF planning systems in EU countries.
The focus is on planning experiences concretely realized and currently working. The Handbook describes and analyzes the planning practices developed in selected EU countries. As such, planning systems developed in Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, Norway, Spain and the Netherlands have been analyzed through a grid of 5 elements as the 5 key elements of the planning system.
The comparison of these key aspects among the seven planning systems highlighted the diversity of approaches to the issue of workforce planning in healthcare, but also allowed to detect some constants.

The D054 reports the results of two pilot projects, conducted in Italy and in Portugal, and two feasibility studies, made in Germany and jointly in Romania and Moldova, in 2015 and 2016. The four initiatives all concerned the implementation of a health workforce planning system using part of the knowledge produced by the Joint Action, in particular the “Handbook on Health Workforce Planning Methodologies across EU countries” and the “Minimum Planning Data Requirements”. Each of the four initiatives is accounted for in a specific report. An “overall report” resumes lessons learnt and recommendations based on the four experiences of implementation.
