The chapter looks at stress and well-being in the UK public sector and in particular the medical profession. An organizational and systemic approach is taken, focusing particularly on how the working environment contributes to challenges for the individual. In the first section on stress, an account is given of how societal changes have added to the interpersonal demands of the medical practitioner. An organizational perspective on stress is described using the Organizational Stress Measure. Subsequent sections concentrate on how the emerging drive towards greater medical leadership and medical engagement contribute to increased role conflict and role ambiguity.

The Innovation Imperative in Health Care Organisations

Critical Role of Human Resource Management in the Cost, Quality and Productivity Equation

Edited by Peter Spurgeon, Ronald J. Burke and Cary L. Cooper

Health systems in the western world face increasingly intense pressure to contain or reduce costs, while countries such as China and India move towards universal coverage. The contributors illustrate that radical gains in efficiency and innovative practice are required internationally in health care systems. They argue that the high proportion of health care system costs invested in staffing place the human resource function at the forefront of meeting this challenge. Sustained system change and productivity gains, more effective management of staff and work climate are essential elements of reform and are all covered in this book.
