Abstract

In the Budget Speech of 1992, it was announced that the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador intended to review the number of Boards operating health care organizations under the Hospital Act. A final report entitled Reduction of Hospital Boards was submitted to the Minister of Health, the Honourable Hubert Kitchen, by Lucy C. Dobbin of Carrick Consulting Services, in March of 1993. This report outlined the principals under which the reduction in the number of Boards should be considered, and made ten (10) recommendations to the Provincial Government as to how the process should proceed. Since 1994, health care in this Province has been regionalized, health care facilities have been closed and/or amalgamated, health care beds have been eliminated, and health care employees have experienced change in their job status-downsizing. -- The intention of this study was to identify the changing employee needs and the changing roles of staff development services that have been created by this downsizing process, and to determine the congruence, or the fit, between the two. The intention of this study was also to identify ways in which staff development services could be more effectively utilized to help meet the needs of health care organizations and of health care employees, during this very critical period in the health care history of this Province.
