Culture and climate in health care organisations
Health care settings – from hospitals to general practice, doctor's offices to medical and surgical wards, to community nursing to hospital in the home – are interesting and exciting places to visit and work. This book explores the concepts of culture and climate in these kinds of health care settings with chapters from some of the best researchers and thinkers in the world. The book is a compilation of recent international research on this theme.
Chapters look at topics such as organizational change, attitudes of clinical professions, how teams work and where conflict occurs. The research reported here provides insights into decision-making in Australian health care, bullying cultures in Ireland, networks in the English National Health Service and innovation in primary health care in Canada. This book is a must-read for researchers and academics, and clinicians, managers, policymakers and patients interested in understanding how modern health systems operate will find information inside discussing when health systems work well, and when they don't including the circumstances in which they are under stress and strain

Abstract

Health care settings – from hospitals to general practice, doctor's offices to medical and surgical wards, to community nursing to hospital in the home – are interesting and exciting places to visit and work. This book explores the concepts of culture and climate in these kinds of health care settings with chapters from some of the best researchers and thinkers in the world. The book is a compilation of recent international research on this theme.
Chapters look at topics such as organizational change, attitudes of clinical professions, how teams work and where conflict occurs. The research reported here provides insights into decision-making in Australian health care, bullying cultures in Ireland, networks in the English National Health Service and innovation in primary health care in Canada. This book is a must-read for researchers and academics, and clinicians, managers, policymakers and patients interested in understanding how modern health systems operate will find information inside discussing when health systems work well, and when they don't including the circumstances in which they are under stress and strain
