Professionalism meets entrepreneurialism and managerialism

Boyce, Rosalie A. (2008) Professionalism meets entrepreneurialism and managerialism. In: Rethinking professional governance: international directions in health care. Policy Press, Bristol, United Kingdom, pp. 77-92. ISBN 978-1-86134-956-9


The purpose of this chapter is to examine the implication of NPM-styled reforms on professional culture and practices in public sector health services using the Australian allied health professions as the case study. The particular
focus is on the repertoire of conducts that professionals mobilise in the face of challenges posed by NPM-styled reforms. The chapter addresses this aim by first discussing the impact of NPM-styled reforms on the professions generally before turning the focus to public sector health professions and entrepreneurship specifically. The research context and methodology are then introduced, including
an explanation of the research subjects – allied health professions – before the findings are examined.
