AbstractSets out specific principles, as determined by a series of WHO studies conducted in Europe, for systems of continuing education for health professionals that take account of changing national health needs and emphasize primary health care. Calling for more than the maintenance of existing skills, the book outlines strategies that can give both continuing education itself and the health professionals who take part a more active role in the health system. The goal is to help countries develop training programmes that will equip professionals to meet the evolving needs of the health care system and the community. The book opens with an outline of the key principles of planning, running, evaluating and organizing multiprofessional continuing education for change. Other chapters describe the insight gained from 19 country reports and 10 case studies. The concluding chapter makes recommendations for realizing the potential of continuing education to improve health care.
