Institutional logics in organisations: The interplay between managerial and professional logics in hospitals (2009–2015)

Individuals acquire professional logics when they are trained and socialised into a profession. Logics are a set of shared values, beliefs and role identities which professionals use to evaluate problems, solutions and the meaning of their work. This study explores how conflicts in hospitals, as organisations, reflect deeper incompatibilities between logics. In hospitals, the logics of different medical professions interact with the managerial logics of hospital administrators. The outcomes of this study will inform healthcare sector management, government policy and public debate by identifying strategies for bridging the incompatibilities between managerial and professional logics concerning proper healthcare and good doctoring .'',
