The article focuses on the management of change in health care reform to assist staff in promoting healthy change. Health care reform can simultaneously create both stress and opportunity for personal and organizational growth and expansion. As institutional-based care is shifted into the community, resistance to change is expected from the entire health care team. Redesign can seem overwhelming to nurses. Hospital nurses are being advised to consider transition to home health care and to other ambulatory settings. To compete in a changing marketplace, hospitals are transforming their methods of delivering health care. INSET: Executive Summary.
