Perceptions of staff nurse autonomy and management characteristics in shared governance systems and traditional organizational systems

Vannatter, Beverly J. January 1996 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to determine if shared governance systems result in an increased perception of autonomy for staff nurses. The population for this study included all registered nurses providing inpatient care at two mid-sized community hospitals in the Midwest, who were not identified as supervisors, managers or executives. The convenience sample was obtained from those completing and returning a distributed survey. The sample was 146 staff nurses from each organization. Only responses from nurses with more than one year experience at the current facility were included in the study. , One hospital had a shared governance system in place. The other hospital had a traditional organizational system.The theoretical framework for the study was the Neuman Systems Model (1989). Staff nurse autonomy was measured by the Nursing Activity Scale (Schutzenhofer, 1987). Management characteristics were measured by the Profile of Organizational Characteristics (Liken, 1978). Also administered was a brief demographic data questionnaire (Schutzenhofer & Musser, 1994).Each hospital provided the researcher with access to participant mailboxes of those registered nurses providing inpatient care and not in management or executive roles Surveys were placed in each mailbox, and drop boxes were made available in unit classrooms in one hospital, and in nursing administration in the other hospital. A reminder notice was placed in each participant mailbox one week after initial survey distribution. Drop boxes were retrieved by the researcher one week following the reminder notice distribution. Study participants were informed about the study by cover letter and invited to participate. Participation was strictly voluntary. Data was available only to the investigator and only group data were reported without reference to individual participants. Participant responses were completely anonymous. Questionnaires were printed on two different colors of paper in order to distinguish between hospitals. No code numbers or other identifying marks were placed on any of the questionnaires. The study provided information on which to base management decisions regarding nursing governance arrangements. / School of Nursing

An analysis of stakeholder perceptions of health care reform for strategic planning at an Indiana hospital

Morrow, Karen January 1993 (has links)
This thesis applied the decision support mechanism, Q-Methodology, to an integrated model of issues management and strategic planning. This approach was applied at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville, Indiana in order to respond to the health care reform issue.The research approach involved the three primary stakeholder groups of the hospital: Board of Directors, physicians and managers. The three groups, representing 56 people, attended a planning retreat and identified Riverview's planning options in the form of 77 statements representing future program or service options. These 77 statements were then ranked using Q-methodology.The findings of the study included a QMETHOD computer and researcher analysis of the statements from the perspective of the total group and also the three factors.The final result was a list of statements that comprised Riverview's response to the reform issue in the form of corporate goals and objectives. The conclusions of the study show that:--The integrated approach did provide focus to the strategic planning process. The final list of objectives were all related to the health reform proposal.--Q-Methodology was an appropriate decision support mechanism. It not only provided the final list of corporate objectives but clearly identified potential support and resistance.--A viable set of corporate objectives was developed to respond to the health reform proposal.--All of the stakeholder groups unanimously approved the final list of statements (objectives) in a formal voting process. / Department of Journalism

Turismo de saúde : um estudo comparativo

Nora, Paula Cristina 05 June 2009 (has links)
Este estudo teve por objetivo comparar o Grupo Apollo de Hospitais, considerado referência mundial em turismo de saúde, com os empreendimentos Sul brasileiros: Hotel e Spa Recanto das Águas e Itá Thermas Resort e Spa, por possuírem um departamento específico destinado à qualidade de vida e bem-estar. A pesquisa foi comparativa, de caráter exploratório-descritivo, de corte qualitativo. Para tanto, elegeu-se unidades de significado para a definição de categorias de análise que permitiram determinar quanto essas variáveis se afastam ou se aproximam do modelo indiano, considerado ideal, levando em consideração o fato de Índia e Brasil estarem em esferas político, social, econômica e cultural diferentes. São elas: a) excelência da área médica; c) hotelaria hospitalar; e c) entorno. No estudo, empregou-se a pesquisa bibliográfica e documental, entrevistas e observações in loco. Os documentos analisados foram materiais bibliográficos pertinentes, documentos e matérias publicadas em sites oficiais do governo indiano e documentos acerca da realidade do Apollo Hospitals em seu site na internet, bem como arquivos solicitados para apreciação. As entrevistas foram realizadas com os gestores dos empreendimentos brasileiros, objetos deste estudo. As observações in loco se deram no Hotel e Spa Recanto das Águas e no Itá Thermas Resort e Spa. Os resultados evidenciaram que o Brasil já possui recursos físicos e humanos suficientes para que seja implantado o turismo de saúde, de acordo com os moldes indianos, desde que, se respeite as especificidades sociais, culturais, políticas e econômicas desse país. / Submitted by Ana Guimarães Pereira (agpereir@ucs.br) on 2016-05-18T12:51:30Z No. of bitstreams: 1 Dissertacao Paula Cristina Nora.pdf: 51502217 bytes, checksum: ca901a06ff62fb04664e1aa22e48df3c (MD5) / Made available in DSpace on 2016-05-18T12:51:30Z (GMT).

The research was comparative, of exploratory and descriptive nature, with a qualitative edge. Therefore units of meaning for definition of categories of analisys were elected, which allowed it to determine how much these variables grow farther or closer from the Indian model, considered ideal, taking under consideration the fact that India and Brazil are in different cultural, economic, social and politic levels. They are: a) excellency in the medical areas, b) hospitalar hotels, c) surroundings. In this study the bibliographic and documental researches were engaged, and intervews and observations made in person. The analyzed documents were bibliographic and relevant, contents published in oficial governamental Indian sites and themes around the reality of the Apollo Hospitals on its own site on the net, as well as archives required for appreciation. The interviews were made with the managers of Brazilian enterprises, objects of this study. The observations in person happened in the Hotel and Spa Recanto das Águas and in the Itá Thermas Resort and Spa. The results prove that Brazil already has enough built range, geographic and human resourses for the medical tourism to be enrooted according to the Indian models, as long as the social, cultural, political and economic factors of this country are respected.

An investigation into the effect of power distance as a factor that facilitates the implementation of a computerized hospital information system

Lakay, Denise January 2005 (has links)
Thesis (MTech (Information Technology))--Peninsula Technikon, 2005. / This study was initiated to investigate whether power distance facilitates the successful implementation of a hospital information system. A comparative study was done to evaluate the effect of culture on the same information system (CLINICOM), implemented at the same time, but at different locations. The overall objective of this study was to identify the importance of culture in the implementation of In formation systems and how output influences the success of a system. • The first objective was to assess the organizational culture in each hospital in terms of one of the dimensions of culture on Hofstede's check Iist, namely power distance. • The second objective was to determine whether the speed with which a HIS was implemented was a success at the two academic hospitals in the Western Cape using the reduction of the level of backlog (paper based patient registration records) as a measure of implementation progress. The literature was reviewed on what determines the success of an information system. The effects of culture were studied and in particular power distance on the implementation of an information system and how this factor affected the backlog of information entries. Questionnaires were administered to the clerical staff at the hospitals, as they were the high users of the information system. The study showed that both institutions had a high power distance score, but the one institution had a Power distance Index (POI) that was considerable higher than the other. PDr relates to the concentration of authority. This finding suggests that the managers were more autocratic at the one hospital than at the other. The study found that the higher the PDI, the faster the backlog was reduced at implementation. Thus the higher the por the greater the concentration of authority;
