Conversations around staff shortages are on the rise in healthcare systems across the globe. Addressing the challenges which have caused significant job vacancies and difficulties around staff satisfaction and retention have been a focus for healthcare leaders for many years, but additional stresses, extra safety risks, and limited resources amplified by the Covid-19 pandemic set the industry back after making some significant strides.
