Session 1 - Description of objectives
Goal of the workshop
Assess the overall identification and future coordination of the various (technical)
experts
Questions to be answered:
MAIN:
• Considering the variety of experts on the different technical and knowledge
aspects, are they to be categorized (and handled in a same or in different
networks)?
• What are the goals of this/these technical networks now and in the future, and
which profiles would be necessary?
• Is there a specific role for academic experts?
SECONDARY:
• Do we have existing networks?
• How can we keep these networks alive?

Session 1 – Technical Experts
#
Decision / Conclusion
1
We recognize a difference between technical & policy experts requesting
difference in networking.
2
We recognize that the are between 4 and 6 types of technical experts – the
proposed subdivision, with some corrections, is a good start to propose
categories for the first list of experts due to be delivered by March 2014.
3
We will populate the first list of experts with all the known experts participating
in the J.A., but also with the experts highlighted by our major stakeholders.
The Stakeholder analysis is a powerful tool to help us populate the second
delivery of the list of experts.
4
The first matrix-like list of expert will match names with types of expertise as per
#2, and additional columns highlighting the professions that are mastered by
each expert.

Session 1 – Technical Experts
#
Decision / Conclusion
5
We identified that whatever the shape of the network(s), one of its/their task is
to provide support to policy makers network, helping policy being made at EU
and at national level.
6
Considering the results of the workshop, we recognize that network(s) of
technical experts are useful to address 2 more dimensions of needs:
- Provide data / Evidence based evaluation of policy / Observatory role
- Knowledge Management / Sharing & Internal Consultancy all through EU
7
We tend to recommend to have only one network of technical experts, with a
strong management allowing each category to be addressed on its own topics on
a regular base.

Session 2 - Description of objectives
Goal of the workshop
Define what sort of experts are needed for the sustainability Work Package (policy
making)
Questions to be answered:
MAIN:
• Which government bodies are important for sustainability of health workforce
planning and how do we identify the experts on policy making?
• How can the policy experts network created by the Joint Action articulate with the
governmental official representatives?
SECONDARY:
• How do we build further commitment while managing the differences?

Session 2 – Policy Experts
#
Decision / Conclusion
1
It has been identified that the role of policy experts is to :
- prepare/validate the recommendations of the JA
- to follow-up the recommendations of the JA
2
The role (and mandate) of the EU Expert group on HWF and its relation with a
potential network of policy expert should be analysed.
3
The usage of policy expert within WP7 is scheduled according to the phase of JA.
(Focus on awareness, dissemination, decision making, implementation, ...)
4
The preferred ways of gathering a network of policy experts are also variable
according to phase & goals:
• Platform type
• Conference, seminar type
• Policy dialogue type
5
« Profiles » can be helpful for organizations, government boards for identifying
right delegates: commitment, expertise, power/influence/mandate

Session 3 - Description of objectives
Goal of the workshop
• Define the sustainability of the WP5 and WP6 handout
products
• Building up on knowledge management and knowledge
transfer
Questions to be answered:
MAIN:
• How will the ‘cookbook’ be updated after the pilot studies and
in the future?
• How will the literature study be updated after its production?
• Are they ‘extension’ to the foreseen documents to be
planned?

Session 2 – Policy Experts
#
Decision / Conclusion
6
It has been pointed out that for many participants there is no clear distinction
between technical and policy experts and that roles are changing.
(note: Michel Van Hoegaerden will produce a appendix based on HR theory and
giving a easy definition of positions & roles)
7
It has been pointed out that even though there might be a difference in profile, a
network would benefit from including both technical & policy experts.
8
It has been concluded that having a mandate is most important for policy experts.

Session 3 – Tools
#
Decision / Conclusion
1
We identified a large number of activities to handle after the JA in all directions,
so we collect items for the draft 1 delivery of WP7 in January to be upgraded by
consultations.
2
We can artificially group those inputs into 3 big categories which we agreed to
use as chapters for the first delivery:
- Lessons learned (bigger focus 75% of the votes)
- Extending the models up to Management Information Systems (25%)
- Data collection and update implementation (0% of the votes)
3
We agreed on the process to switch in 2016 from the WP5 handbook to future
developpement, with open source concept (to the usage of the network of
experts) and the set up of a QA process
4
We know that the JA needs to focus on its task
5
We recongnize the need of very basic tools for the starting countries
6
We still have the expectation to evaluate fast after the basic level is implemented

Session 4 - Description of objectives
Goal of the workshop
• Define the roll-out of the WP4, WP5 and WP6 product after
the pilot studies
• Discuss how could we, all through EU & associated, share data
and evaluate up to a good planning & forecasting level
Questions to be answered:
MAIN
• Considering the MATRIX study, are they next candidate countries for using
the WP4, 5 & 6 products from scratch?
• What can countries that are already into planning learn from these
cookbooks and further implement?
SECONDARY
• What could be a realistic plan for roll-out and can it usefully be supported
by EU

Session 4 – Roll-Out
#
Decision / Conclusions
1
We identified the situations of 5 countries within 2 groups /
- Planning countries (UK/BE) – Main concerns: enhancing the models & keep
track of yearly forecasting
- Starting countries (IT/HU/BG) - Main concerns: Data collection & political
support
2
It is impossible now to identify candidates for next basic migration because of the
importance of Political decision, thought the level of readiness can be evaluated.
3
There are 2 trends the JA can work on:
- Appropriate dissemination with highlight of financial impact and exemples
- Update of overview data and further definitions of concepts and common
standards
4
There is 1 trend to manage at EU level where severall topics were collected.
Inclusion in a TOP DOWN approach is important to get political support and apply
Name & Shame
5
We identified that the process that UK/BE went through took money but talso
time. The JA will help cutting a lot of money, but time is still needed and can only
be cut a little.

Session 5 - Description of objectives
Goal of the workshop
• Collect the major message of the WP7 & WPL participants towards the
future of Planning & Forecasting
Questions to be answered:
MAIN
• What are, the benefits/added value for continued European collaboration
through a Joint Action to meet health workforce needs?
• How can JA influence and contribute to the development of European
level comparable, accurate and good quality data for workforce planning
purposes?
• Do participants have initial views on policy recommendations for the EU
on top of the technical aspects within the final paper of the Joint Action?
SECONDARY
• Are they some important known actions, currently out of scope of the
Joint Action, which should be addressed in a future follow up Joint Action
post 2016?

Session 5 – Recommendations
#
Decision / Conclusion
1
We have to develop a sustainability strategy based on the Knoster model of
change
2
We need to remind both internal and external dimension of the sustainability
strategy
3
The JA network development in collaboration with other existing network is
essential (Data / Expertise & Tools to be used for decision meeting)
4
Training and Mobility issues need political commitment (EU + bilateral)
5
Recruitment and Working Conditions issues need political commitment
6
Importance of dissemination of the JA recommendation also to Education, Labor
& Social Affairs
7
We may develop a concept of virtual observatory
