Globally we face a shortfall of an estimated 4.3 million health care workers. As you can imagine, the consequences are enormous when a local or global health crisis arises and there are not enough staff members to address the need.

How do you address this issue when you are facing an emergency crisis, such as an infectious disease outbreak? Do we simply accept the fact that we will not be able to provide care to every single individual?
