The relationship between technology and task design in hospital nursing units

Academic Article


  • An empirical assessment of the use of the Hackman, Oldham, Janson, and Purdy (1975) implementing principles as a theoretical link between hospital nursing unit technology and job design is presented in this paper. While support for the implementing principles as an integrating mechanism was found to be weak, some insights into organization theory are noted and suggestions for future research resulting from this study are outlined. © 1990, SAGE Publications.
