Evaluating Nursing Staff Mix in Long-Term Care: A Comprehensive Framework for Decision-Makers
Alice Kennedy

Abstract:
The connection between care-provider type and patient outcomes is well established. Less well understood, however, is how to evaluate staff mix decision-making aimed at maximizing quality outcomes for care recipients, nursing staff and healthcare systems. From May through November 2008, Eastern Health, the largest regional integrated health authority in Newfoundland and Labrador, conducted a Staff Mix Intervention Project designed, in part, to gauge the effectiveness of the Evaluation Framework to Determine the Impact of Nursing Staff Mix Decisions in assessing the impact of nursing staff mix changes in long-term care. Results reveal that the Evaluation Framework is a useful tool for managers and other decision-makers to use when measuring the comprehensive effects of staff mix changes and planning further human resources modifications.

Kim S.

Abstract:
Workplace harassment affects both women and men in every walk of life, in every level of employment. And yet, it is one of those topics we often avoid discussing frankly for fear of "opening up a can of worms." Let's talk about it - with Management, Human Resources, and staff.

This commentary highlights some of the main dimensions of HR - related change in the U. K . National Health Service (NHS) to counterpoint the main messages in the lead paper.
