What is this? The COVID-19 pandemic is placing a strain on healthcare services and workers. Existing research on the effects of regulating health workers holding two or more jobs (dual practice) may provide useful information for policy makers.

In this Cochrane review, the authors searched for comparative effectiveness studies on the effects of regulations to manage dual practice on work-related outcomes among healthcare workers. They restricted their search to studies published in English and Spanish and did the search in May 2011 but found no eligible studies.

What was found: At the time of this review, the reviewers found no eligible studies and were unable to determine the effects of regulations to manage dual practice on work-related outcomes.
