Paul James


This is a research paper that is focused on the evaluation of senior nursing leadership perceptions and its impacts on Emergency Medical Centre (EMC) practices and developments related to private hospital provision in Bangkok.

An interpretive methodology was utilised in order to help understand senior nurses’ perceptions underpinning nursing leadership. The scope for this research were EMC teams. The population of interest was made up of 13 senior nurses, encompassing single-site private hospitals in Bangkok. Ten (10) senior-level nursing practitioners at Emergency Trauma Centres were carefully targeted as a resultant sample size.

The research outcomes consisted of three (3) Main Themes - Individual Nursing Characteristics; System Qualities; Work Features and ten (10) sub-themes - with 248 dialogue targets.

The paper addresses a number of raised areas resulting out of the analysis of the narrative to ascertain implications for managing senior nursing leadership requirements within the EMC of private hospitals and addresses hospital concerns/responses and managerial difficulties related to developing opportunities for senior nurse leadership in private hospital EMCs.
