Title Managing health worker migration: a qualitative study of the Philippine response to nurse brain drain
Author Roland M Dimaya, Mary K McEwen, Leslie A Curry and Elizabeth H Bradley

From Abstract:

Methods: Interviews and focus group discussions were conducted to elicit exploratory perspectives on the policy response to nurse brain drain. Focus group discussions were held with practising nurses to understand policy recipients’ perspectives on nurse migration and policy.

Concusions: Development of responsive policy to Filipino nurse brain drain offers a glimpse into a domestic response to an increasingly prominent global issue. As a major source of professionals migrating abroad for employment, the Philippines has formalised efforts to manage nurse migration. Accordingly, the Philippine paradigm, summarised by the thematic framework presented in this paper, may act as an example for other countries that are experiencing similar shifts in healthcare worker employment due to migration.
