A Feminist Grounded Theory Study of the Perspectives of Top Nursing Service Administrators in Several Regions of Japan
Abstract:
A Feminist Grounded Theory Study of the Perspectives of Top Nursing Service Administrators in Several Regions of Japan
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Brandi, Cheryl Lynn, DNSc, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Aichi Medical University
Title:Professor of Nursing
Co-Authors:Akiko Naito, BEd, MSN, MBA, RN
Background: This study is based on a study completed by the first presenter in 1997, entitled: "The Perspectives of the Woman/Nurse/Executive Working in the Managed Care Environment of Southern California." After moving from the U.S. to Japan, the researcher found that nursing administration research and feminist research were scarce in Japan. Based on a review of nursing administration literature published in Japanese, this research is the first of its kind in Japan for this specialty. In spring of 2001, the presenters (co-researchers) received a 3-year Japanese government grant to conduct this study. The topic is a timely one for Japan, with the rapid development of graduate programs, and the significant need for nurse administrators with bachelors and graduate degrees. The study is still in-progress. Objective: Explore the perspectives of top nursing service administrators in several regions in Japan. Design: Feminist grounded theory (dimensional analysis). Population, Sample, Setting: Female directors and assistant directors of nursing in hospitals in mostly the Chubu and Kanto regions of Japan. Data is collected at a place determined by participants. Methods: Tape-recorded semi-structured interviews conducted jointly by both researchers, one American and one Japanese. Presently, 10 interviews in Japanese (each about 90 minutes in length) have been completed and 7 transcribed and translated into English. Coding is in-progress. Co-researchers plan further data collection and data analysis through the end of the year. Findings: Preliminary findings as of October 2003 will be presented. Implications: The study will have implications in 2 realms, process as well as results, since the co-researchers represent a cross-cultural team.
