  Title Quality, complexity and organizational health

Abstract/Notes There is an emerging body of literature in management science supporting the proposition that success in engendering a coherent philosophy of health among students is dependent to a significant extent upon a college that subscribes to those same health principles not only in the curriculum but in the management practices of the organization. Health then becomes the natural state of affairs not only for patients, but for the organization as a whole. One model of health care which is health-oriented, person-centered and evidence-based is identified as the basis for a model of organizational health. The Total Quality Management (TQM) model is shown to reflect these characteristics. Its strengths and limitations are reviewed and the model is extended through the introduction of complex adaptive systems (CAS) concepts emerging from the complexity sciences. These concepts are given operational status through the introduction of Senge's work with systems theory and learning organizations. The linkage of learning, whole-thinking and health is suggested as a viable model of organizational health for chiropractic educational institutions.
