Health Care Work Redesign

Edited by:

January 1995 | 296 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Exploring efforts to reform the current system of health care delivery-in response to the demands and criticisms of regulatory agencies, insurers, and consumers-Health Care Work Redesign provides innovative, proactive strategies for nursing administrators and others facing this pivotal issue. Following an introduction of theoretical and methodological concerns, contributors present the nurse manager as a change agent in describing their individual and organizational efforts in work redesign, role reconceptualization, job enrichment and empowerment, competency-based performance, and transitional management approaches. Finally, evaluation is considered in terms of action learning / action research, allowing for flexibility and adaptation in a constantly changing environment. With its emphasis on practical applications, this thorough exploration of current shifts in philosophy and practice will be indispensable to nurse administrators, faculty, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
