Evaluation Cafe: September 23rd, 2008
Stakeholders constitute one element of the political environment or context in which health care operates. The values of key stakeholders consist of such things as their desires and goals. In the past decade, the numbers of stakeholders in health care settings have been on the rise. This has increased complexity and diversity of values. The diversity of values has decreased supportiveness and put pressure on the activities and organizational success or goals of health-care settings, such as clinical quality, profitability, and so forth. This presentation will address these questions: What are the values in health-care settings? What are the values of the key stakeholders? How can the values and standards of the key stakeholders be synthesized into merit and worth? Additionally, the author will discuss the qualitative synthesis method and stakeholders’ assessment mapping.
