Buzzing over Nurses’ Training and Capacity Building

In what seems to be an overhaul toward employees’ retention programs, and skills assessment for human resources management and capacity building, the PM of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit has highlighted a national policy agenda to address the shortage of Nurses for the country. For the past years Dominica has been confronting an acute shortage of labor in the nursing field.

Thus, a phenomenon which brings to the surface some issues about the adaptation of its labor market vis-à-vis certain incentive systems to strengthen the economy, and at the same time guarantee delivery of some public services to sustain sectoral activities.
In the case of the health-care sector, these perspectives come closer to matters of choices to guide public expenditures, and strike the right balance for economic development, and sustained access between the provision of medical care, and high quality standards in health services. These elements open a broad landscape to conduct discussions about public policy and the dynamics and determinants that are rooted between equity and efficiency.
