Global migration has a huge impact on the health care. It also affects quality of care provided. A recent speech at an AARP conference explored how diversity of culture contributes to quality of care and services in health care:

“Amid the many policy issues raised by a global, migratory health/long-term care workforce is a fundamental concern: whether planners and policymakers are cultivating an inclusion mindset or an inclusion ethic as they adapt institutions and design programs that deliver health and long-term care.”

Usually when talking about quality, people forget that it has so many dimensions.  It is important to remember that quality is only as strong as the work force.
