Sims, Jane, Rink, Elizabeth, Walker, Rebecca and Pickard, Linda (1997) The introduction of a hospital at home service: a staff perspective. Journal of Interprofessional Care, 11 (2). pp. 217-225. ISSN 1356-1820

Much of the literature regarding hospital at home schemes focuses upon the organisational and economic implications. In evaluating the success of such programmes, the emphasis has been on patient centred outcomes such as health and satisfaction with care. This paper focuses upon the health professional's perspective. The role of the staff and their attitudes towards such health care innovations are over-arching links between the patient and the organisation. As such, they are factors to be considered in order to contextualise the findings of any evaluation of new health care projects.
