Sustainability In Quality Improvement And Patient Safety Initiatives, Angelo P. Giardino, Eileen R. Giardino

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

The question often asked of a quality improvement initiative is whether the improvement process has been sustained within the organization. Rarely is the question answered satisfactorily.

This evaporation of improvement captures the frustrating inability of many institutions to maintain the achieved improvement after the newness of the initial effort wears off (Buchanan, Fitzgerald, & Ketley, 2007). This ...

A Way To Resolve Intergenerational Conflict Over The Environment Under The Pareto Criterion Using Green Bonds, Torben M. Andersen, Joydeep Bhattacharya, Pan Liu 2019 University of Aarhus

A Way To Resolve Intergenerational Conflict Over The Environment Under The Pareto Criterion Using Green Bonds, Torben M. Andersen, Joydeep Bhattacharya, Pan Liu

Joydeep Bhattacharya

Any policy designed to combat climate change will likely create intergenerational winners and losers because the associated costs appear up-front while the benefits come downstream. In such cases, cost benefit analysis seeks potential Pareto-improvements in the Kaldor–Hicks sense, the hypothetical potential for the winners to compensate the losers. Of course, once the policy is indeed implemented and has unleashed distortions and general-equilibrium effects, such potential improvements may not lead to actual improvements. We ask, which policies, once implemented, would pass the Pareto test that no generation subsequent to policy action be made worse off than before. We study a ...

Social Workers As Social Change Agents: Social Innovation, Social Intrapreneurship, And Social Entrepreneurship, Monica Nandan, Manuel London, Tricia Bent-Goodley

Monica Nandan

This article explores and describes social innovation, social intrapreneurship, and social entrepreneurship practiced by social workers within human service organizations. Each year, the nature and complexity of clients’ problems and challenges experienced by communities continuously evolves and grows. These challenges call for social workers to lead and facilitate social change that can have a lasting impact on communities and people. The authors report findings from an exploratory, descriptive study conducted with ten social workers on these practices. The findings point to the need to develop and integrate these contents within social work education and further promote dual-degree graduate programs.
