A Consistent Framework Will Allow Valid Comparison

Heather K. Spence Laschinger

The notion of a unified nationwide approach to measuring and monitoring healthy work environments is indeed an idea whose time has come, as Lowe and Chan point out in their paper. These authors present a compelling argument for why such an approach is needed and offer a potential framework that could be used to accomplish this goal. Clear articulation of quality indicators and concepts will be critical to successful implementation and adoption of the framework within various healthcare organizations. Once adopted, the framework will facilitate accurate comparison between organizations.
