CGFNS International’s President and CEO, Dr. Franklin A. Shaffer, and Mukul Bakhshi, Director of Government Affairs of CGFNS’ Alliance for Ethical International Recruitment Practices division, are co-authors of a new editorial in Nursing Ethics titled, “Ethical challenges and nursing recruitment during COVID-19.”
Published on February 10, the editorial explores the impacts of COVID-19 on international nurse migration and the challenges it presents for ethical recruitment amid an existing workforce shortage, as well as implications for the transnational policy landscape.
The authors refer to a 2020 study of migrant nurses by CGFNS and the Alliance to emphasize the successes of existing ethical recruitment policy while also highlighting persistent concerns exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has already created numerous setbacks for efforts to make migration safer all, especially for health professionals at a time when they are most in-demand.
In addition to Dr. Shaffer and Bakhshi, former CGFNS International Trustee Alessandro Stievano, nursing researcher at the Centre of Excellence for Nursing Scholarship – OPI Roma, and Duncan Hamilton, nurse and doctoral student at the University of Surrey, were also co-authors of the editorial.
