Health Policy, 2019, vol. 123, issue 11, 1093-1099

Abstract: Little is known about the drivers of migration of GPs. Risk attitude may play an important role as migration is fundamentally a risky decision that balances the risks of staying with the risks associated with leaving. This paper examines the association between risk attitudes and the migration of UK GPs to Australia.
