Applying management principles to the occupational health unit.

J. S. Goodwin, S. O. Horner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents the occupational health unit as a subsystem competing with other subsystems in the organization for limited resources. By applying management principles the nurse can design a program to show management its results in dollar terms. This will enable the health unit to compete more favorably with the other subsystems for limited resources. An example of how this approach can be applied to the problem of absenteeism is presented.
