520    This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This 
       book investigates what international placements of 
       healthcare employees in low resource settings add to the 
       UK workforce and the efficacy of the its national health 
       system. The authors present empirical data collected from 
       a volunteer deployment project in Uganda focused on 
       reducing maternal and new-born mortality and discuss the 
       learning and experiential outcomes for UK health care 
       professionals acting as long term volunteers in low 
       resource settings. They also develop a model for 
       structured placement that offers optimal learning and 
       experiential outcomes and minimizes risk, while shedding 
       new light on the role that international placements play 
       as part of continuing professional development both in the
       UK and in other sending countries
