          To assess the relationship among perceived nursing group power, organizational trust and patient orientation and identify patient orientation predictors.


          Nurses and nursing organizations should use all resources to give care.


          Survey data were collected from 193 nurses at six acute care hospitals in South Korea. Characteristics of hospitals and nurses were analysed using t tests, one‐way ANOVAs and regression models.


          The means for perceived nursing group power, organizational trust and patient orientation were 3.71 ( SD± 0.58), 3.22 ( SD± 0.83) and 3.94 ( SD± 0.53), respectively. Multiple regression analysis revealed that 40% of the variance in patient orientation was explained by perceived nursing group power, organizational trust and work experience.


          Hospitals should increase nursing group power and improve organizational trust to enhance patient orientation. Hospital executives and nurse managers should work to enhance nursing group power and positive perceptions of organizational trust, which could contribute to patient orientation.

          A concept analysis of trust.

           J L Johns (1996)
          Trust is an important and pervasive concept. In nursing, it has been considered primarily from two perspectives. Clinically, it is an important aspect of the nurse-patient relationship. Organizationally, trust is associated with various outcomes and levels of effectiveness. Much of the nursing literature that discusses trust relies upon vague conceptualizations or borrows from other disciplines. The absence of a clear conceptualization of trust has been cited. A core concept of trust is presented which is applicable to nursing in both clinical and organizational settings. Established methods for concept analysis are supplemented by a sequential step model developed by the author. The concept is developed as both process and outcome, and the relationships of the two states to measurement of the concept are identified. The utilization of the core concept in context-specific instances is discussed, and suggestions are made for further research.

               Liz Fradd (2004)
              This paper explores the author's personal experience of working in positions of leadership in a variety of National Health Service roles. In particular how in these roles was it possible to influence policy and if not, why not, what the challenges are for leading in a political environment, and what competencies are needed to succeed. Readers will draw their own conclusions about how they approach their work and what might be done differently on reflection.
