Professional and organizational values of male and female U.S. Public Health Service commissioned officers.
A study was conducted to determine the organizational and professional values held by male and female physicians, nurses, and pharmacists serving in the U.S. Public Health Service.
An existing instrument was modified to measure health professionals'organizational values and professional values.
These values were analyzed by multivariate and multiple regression techniques to ascertain the relationship the independent variables sex, age, marital status, race, and practice type of the health professionals had with the levels of each measurement.
Sex, age, marital status, race, and practice type appeared to affect the values held in varying degrees.
Differences between organizational and professional values held by the health professionals will have an effect on future roles for officers in the U.S. Public Health Service.
There will also be an impact on society as the nation decides the future direction for health care.
