Workforce recruiting and retaining in healthcare (2/3)
Play • 21 min

By 2030, the World Health Organization predicts a global shortage of 15 million healthcare workers. As the number of individuals requiring medical care increases, staff shortages are becoming more of a problem. In diagnostic areas with complex indications, the lack of trained and knowledgeable staff can lead not only to errors but also to insufficient time for patient care. Radiology technologists must also be able to perform complex cases, and this requires separate training.

To solve the global staffing shortage, there are two crucial keys: staff recruitment and staff retention — both of which medical schools, hospitals, and industry can play an important role in. 

Today, Ven Virah, Global Contingent Staffing Expert, Workforce Solutions at Siemens Healthineers, is joined by Dr. Elliot K. Fishman, Director of the Divisions of Diagnostic Imaging at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Professor of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland; Brad Genereaux, Global Lead of Medical Imaging at NVIDIA; and Elio Arruzza, a lecturer and research academic in medical radiation science at the University of South Australia who also works as a radiographer and medical imaging technologist for Jones Radiology in South Australia.
