In the current fiscal, political, and technological climate, health care organizations – and the people within them – are undergoing constant change. These changes require professionals to learn new ways to work. Paula Rowland's research examines the impact of organizational change on learning in the clinical workplace, exploring how health care practices are either transformed or sustained in the context of organizational reform. She uses critical social theories to explore two major change efforts: (1) programs related to patient safety and (2) patient engagement for quality improvement. Through this research, Paula explores questions about the politics of knowledge and the various competing imperatives within institutions. The aim is to contribute to the ability of these institutions to create both health and care.
