BeschreibungSeminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Medical Care, grade: 1,0, University of Aberdeen (College of Life Sciences and Medicine), language: English, abstract: Scarcity of Healthcare professionals especially Doctors and Nurses is a worldwide phenomenon. On one hand demographic factors like population growth is bringing problems with it for example the demand of more healthcare, on the other hand the ageing population also comes up with age related diseases like Alzheimer¿s and Dementia. If Health Technology fails to develop further, it is obvious that we will have to face difficult challenges in the future. To meet the demand of more healthcare professionals, countries like the UK are very dependent on foreign countries that supply such people, like nurses from some East Asian countries. The scarcity of Healthcare Professionals is also a big problem for developing countries. Population growth and ageing not only generates the scarcity of health professionals but also brings the need to expand health infrastructures. For example, the healthcare institutions and health workforce that exist today were designed when the size of population was lower. So, today with higher growth of population, the expansion of health-infrastructures as well as health personnel is vital to meet the demand and to maintain the quality of healthcare.
