Summary/Abstract: The research, determined by Green paper on the European Workforce for Health – the Commission of the European Communities consultation -, was developed on hospital managers from the Romanian public sector on the topic of health care workers. The study is trying to identify the problems and their possible solutions to decrease the negative effects of these problems, being centred on the migration of health care workers, the lack of personnel, professional training and managerial solutions. Regarding the reason of the health care working migration, the answers pointed to both push factors and the pull ones, prevailing those that indicated as reason of going abroad: the improper salaries, the bad condition of work and the lack of medical technology. The effects of migrations were analysed in the context of two general factors which affect the work force from the health care system: the demographic drop, that has as effect the diminution of recruitment potential, and the ageing of population, having as effects an increase of request for health care services (so an increased need of health care personnel).
