The Commonwealth as a Custodian of Dental Migratory Ethics: Views of Senior Oral Health Leaders From India and Australia
International dental journal 2011 Oct; 61(5): 281-6
The Commonwealth of Nations is a unique congregation of 53 countries providing a platform for realistic collaboration on several social and health care issues. Ethical migration of health professionals from developing to developed countries is a key priority of the Commonwealth and several ethical codes have been put into practice. However, these codes have been mainly developed in regard to the medical workforce (physicians and nurses), and can have some limitations when applied to the dental profession. The aim of this study was to understand the role of the Commonwealth in influencing ethical migration of dentists from developing to developed countries, by examining the case of Indian-trained dentists migrating to Australia.
