Abstract

This paper documents the resilience of medical and nursing profession-based subcultures and the extent of the differences between them. Against this background, we assess the capacity and willingness of medical and nursing managers to promote changes that will extend the accountability of clinicians and engender more evidence-based, financially driven and output-oriented approaches to service delivery.
