|Title:||A Study of Quality Management Practices in Nursing in Universities in Australia||Contributor(s):||Cruickshank, MT (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/721||Abstract:||In Australia, the traditional Quality Assurance approach used in the hospital setting has played an important role in nursing practice. During the past decade, nurses have begun making a paradigm shift from Quality Assurance to Total Quality Management but scant attention has been paid to quality management practices in nursing in the higher education sector. This paper reports on a quantitative study examining the perceptions of nurse academics to the applicability of TQM to nursing in universities. The findings identified how TQM could be applied to suit the nursing culture in the higher education sector.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Health Review, 26(1), p. 194-200||Publisher:||Australian Healthcare Association||Place of Publication:||Canberra||ISSN:||0156-5788||Field of Research (FOR):||111709 Health Care Administration||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.aushealthcare.com.au/publications/articles/issues/ahr_26_1_200303/ahr_26_1_194-200.asp||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 66
