Economics of the Health Workforce 2013


[AUSTRALIA] This year's conference will be July 6-7 in Sydney. The health workforce forms the backbone of health care systems around the world. The decisions they make have major impacts on costs and health outcomes. The focus of the conference will be on micro-econometric studies of health workforce supply and demand. Among the topics to be explored are: pay and wage setting; competition in health labour markets; human capital formation; occupation and specialty choice; career transitions; gender differences; geographic distribution of health professionals; international migration; and the evaluation of policy interventions directed at health professionals' labour markets.
