Dentistry in the Age of Healthcare Migration

„Dentistry in the age of healthcare migration” (a current book proposal she is co-authoring for Policy Press) examines problems, priorities and policy proposals in the context of globalization and the potential for global responsibility and governance. The migration of dentists is a major policy challenge facing both developing and developed countries. Dentists from over 120 countries migrate to Australia, and a large proportion are from developing countries. Migrant dentists, mainly from developing countries, face challenges both in their home countries and in Australia.

Professor Stephanie Short leads Workforce Development Activities in the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre in Workforce Development in Rehabilitation and Long Term Care. She is Deputy Director of the Sydney Asia Pacific Migration Centre, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Academic Lead of the Shaping Health Systems Research Group, World Universities Network.

Professor Short’s research interests concern health governance and public policy, both locally and internationally. She has published widely in health sociology and public policy, including the 5th edition of Health Care and Public Policy: An Australian Analysis, published by Palgrave Macmillan, as co-author, and Health Workforce Governance, as co-editor, published
by Ashgate in the UK in 2012.
