Factors influencing sustainability of health service innovation, emergency nurse practitioner service

Fox, Amanda R (2016) Factors influencing sustainability of health service innovation, emergency nurse practitioner service. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


Escalating health care delivery costs and consumer expectations have led to a range of health service and workforce innovations in the provision of high quality cost effective patient care. This research has operationalised a theoretical framework to examine factors that influence sustainability of health service innovations, in particular, emergency nurse practitioner service. The results of this research will inform health service policy and practice for future implementation of innovative workforce models and add to the understanding of factors that influence sustainability.
