INTEGRATION In order to work in Swedish healthcare, practitioners need to know about Swedish legislation, for instance the laws and regulations related to the healthcare system. The Umeå Forum for Studies on Law and Society at Umeå University will offer a new course in Swedish laws and regulations aimed at healthcare practitioners educated outside the EU/EES. This will help hundreds of people find work in Sweden.
