Abstract

Refugee healthcare professionals are a particular subset of refugees whose education and training requirements are specific to regulatory bodies in host countries. This chapter will use a UK-based organization (Refugee and Asylum Seeking Centre for Healthcare Professionals Education (REACHE) North West) as a case study to demonstrate the process of requalification, return to work, and integration. There are a variety of strands in this process which include language, clinical knowledge and practice, cultural influences, and experience of the asylum and refugee process. In this chapter, there is a model of education and training for working with refugee healthcare professionals which can be adapted to work with staff trained internationally to support the development of education and training material for successful integration into work.
