Abstract

Public healthcare organisations in Sweden have been described as strongly hierarchical and coherent organisations [1]. To bring about control, generalized care models have been developed to handle hospital clinics and primary care sites [2]. This paper examines the preparedness to change in hospital settings. The purpose of the present study was to reveal barriers to the introduction of person-centred care (PCC). Organisational culture and resistance to change on hospital ward and clinical level and was based on the 2 concepts of “organisational culture” and “resistance to change”. These 2 concepts were measured by questionnaires based on theories of organisational culture and resistance to change.
