Abstract

Purpose

Performance of home health aides remains imperative in the medical community, but understanding the potential role of consideration leadership (CL) in improving performance of home health aides in the literature has gone undetected. This paper seeks to address these issues.

Design/methodology/approach

The present study, using the 2007 National Home Health Aides Survey (n=3,308), aims to investigate the moderating role of consideration leadership (CL) in the relationship between injury and training among home health aides at the national level. Descriptive statistics and a hierarchical logistic regression analysis were performed.

Findings

Not all consideration practices play a positive role in the relationship between training and injury. The authors found only employee-focused consideration leadership practices, when introduced together with training, may benefit home health aides in reducing injury.

Research limitations/implications

To maximize training effectiveness, leaders may need to understand the importance of their own role in training transfer processes and attempt to demonstrate adequate influence behaviors such as consideration.

Originality/value

This research is the first of its kind to explore the role of consideration leadership in the relationship with injury and training among home health aides.

Abstract

Purpose

Prescription drug requests and physician denial are important aspects of medical decision making, but little research has been done to identify factors linked to prescription drug request and physician denial. This paper aims to explore factors in relation to patient prescription drug request and provider denial.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper is based on a cross‐sectional study in a nationally representative database of 2,988 individuals. Descriptive and multivariate stepwise conditional logistic regression analyses were conducted.

Findings

Results of multivariate regression models reveal, after adjusting for personal factors, that heart disease, allergy, anxiety, minor chronic conditions, medical seeking behaviors and direct‐to‐consumer advertising (DTCA) were found to be related to prescription drug request. The denied were individuals with arthritis, less prevalent chronic conditions, the uninsured, and African Americans. It was also found that 27.4 percent of the sample requested a prescription drug and about 24 percent of those who segmented for prescriptions were physicians.

Research limitations/implications

DTCA is positively associated with prescription drug requests but the analysis did not support any effect of DTCA on the refusal status. Patients' requests and physician decision making to refuse are somewhat complicated and vary with different medical conditions.

Originality/value

The paper, using nationally representative data, investigates the factors associated with prescription drug request and denial.

Abstract

Discussion of unification was for several decades focused on the costs rather than the benefits for Korea, until reports emphasizing the latter were published by Goldman Sachs (2009) and various Korean think tanks over the past four to five years. Although these studies can be evaluated positively in pointing out the benefits of unification rather than the concerns about the costs, several questions can be raised. This paper tries to evaluate the quality and credibility of existing studies and suggests a new approach for estimating the impact of unification. It proposes a computational general equilibrium (CGE) model to be based on the social accounting matrix (SAM) and input-output (IO) table for the North Korean economy, in order to produce more reliable estimates of the benefits and costs of unification and the impact of various cooperative activities between the two Koreas.

Abstract

Since it is difficult for researchers to access data for the North Korean economy, they typically choose a proxy economy for estimating the economic impact of the unification of the two Koreas using a computational general equilibrium (CGE). This paper aims to identify the best proxy economy for North Korea out of the 140 economies (countries) in the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database version 9.1, which was published in mid-2015. (Ed- if your study aim is ‘to identify the best proxy economy for North Korea’, then you must state your study finding here in the abstract, and also in the conclusion, i.e., Romania) This paper evaluates the input-output (IO) tables for the North Korean economy in existing studies. Comparing the coefficients for North Korea in existing studies with those of the countries selected for this paper, substantial differences were found, especially for the services sector. This casts some doubt on the IO tables in the existing studies on the North Korean economy.
