Interprofessional relationships: doctors and nurses in Slovenia

Interprofessional relationships: doctors and nurses in Slovenia

(p.111) Seven Interprofessional relationships: doctors and nurses in Slovenia
Rethinking professional governance

Majda Pahor

Policy Press

This chapter discusses research into interprofessional relationships between nurses and doctors in Slovenia, introducing the notion of culture as a hidden organiser of professional action and identity. It places the individual perceptions and actor-based changes in the Slovenian healthcare system in the context of the historical formation of Roman Catholic culture and the experiences of the centralised bureaucracy of the socialist era. The concept of individualisation and self-determination and the notion of trust serve to explore the complexity and cultural embeddedness of professional relationships in healthcare.

Keywords:   Slovenia, nurse-doctor relationship, interprofessional relationships, professional action, healthcare system, Roman Catholic culture
