Nurses' Orientations To Change: Debunking the "Resistant To Change" Myth.
Rafael, Adeline R. Falk
Journal of Professional Nursing, v16 n6 p336-44 Nov-Dec 2000
From 14 Ontario public health nurses' descriptions of their reactions to changes in the field from 1980-1996, six orientations to change were identified. Acceptance included critical approval, insidious assimilation, or wounded acquiescence. Resistance took the form of judicious circumvention or constructive opposition. Change initiation through visionary transformation was another response. (SK)
