Rethinking professional governance

Policy Press

This chapter concludes the first part of the book by examining the implications of the new public management (NPM) reforms related to entrepreneurialism and managerialism for professional culture and practices in public sector health services with reference to allied health professions in Australia. 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. Then, it introduces the research context and methodology, including an explanation of the research subjects, allied health professions.

Keywords:   public management, Australia, entrepreneurialism, managerialism, allied health professions
