A Concept Analysis of Organizational Health and Communication

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Concepts of communication and organizational health were analyzed using the parameters set forth by Walker and Avant, including conceptual selection; clarification; synthesis; attribute exploration and identification; and review of corresponding events. Concept synthesis was initiated through exploration of medical and social science journals, and current literature regarding communication and organizational health was scrutinized to aid conceptual clarification. Concept analysis was informed by using the search engines CINAHL, PubMed, and PsycINFO, with inclusion criteria of "hospital," "communication," and "organizational health." Reenvisioning communication through the lens of organizational health will illuminate issues of false centrality, thus leading to improved interdisciplinary communication in hospitals.
