Clinical Microsystem: A promise for change and equality or hierarchy reinvented?
Jönköping University, School of Education and Communication, HLK, Lifelong learning/Encell.
2011 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This article discusses the health care management model Clinical Microsystem (CM), particularly its potential for promoting/facilitating multi-professional collaboration, as well as the consequences of such, including the implications for equality amongst health care staff.  The innovation of the model is questioned on the grounds of its efficiency-driven rationality, and its relation to system theory and the manufacturing industry is explored. With its emphasis on multi-professional collaboration, CM may indeed foster the reproduction of inequalities; the continuous striving for consensus may contribute to creating a culture of blindness with regard to issues of power between and among the different professions within CM.  In order to secure better outcomes for equality, this article argues for the introduction of a new epistemology – social constructionism - in health care in general and CM in particular to replace constructivism’s individual-centered epistemology  and to challenge socially constructed assumptions and taken-for-granted knowledge.
