Dr. Gigi Lam recently published a journal article "Shortage of nurses in Hong Kong: the challenges ahead" in the journal, Asian Education and Development Studies.

The aging of a population poses significant challenges to healthcare, housing, social security and elderly care services. Active aging is promoted by the Hong Kong government but is compromised by a shortage of nurses, doctors and professional aides. This study aims to review the history of nursing education in Hong Kong, evaluate Hong Kong's nursing manpower policy with a macro–micro analysis based on sociological imagination and a health policy triangle, and provide sound recommendations.
