This is the first of two WHO Europe - AMEE sessions at this conference aimed at discussing how to build a sustainable health and care workforce for optimal, safe, patient-centred care in the complex era of changing population health needs, increased workforce mobility and the recent COVID-19 crisis. To respond properly to these challenges, health professions curricula should adapt much faster to constantly changing societal needs.  

While the second session (Wednesday, 9 September, 0915-1015 UK time) will be focused on establishing cooperation between the WHO Europe and the European health professions education organisations and schools, this Forum session is focused on presenting the European Programme of Work to be considered at the 70th session of the WHO Regional Committee of Europe including the major health needs of Member States in the Region and how a sustainable health and care workforce can be built to provide the care that’s required. Moreover, the best practice example of developing the health professions curriculum on the foundation of UNs Sustainable Development Goals will be presented by the leaders of the newly established Norwegian Centre for Excellence in Education.
