Running Head: DONABEDIAN’S SPO MODEL OF HEALTH CARE QUALITY Donabedian’s SPO Model of Health Care Quality on Asthmatic Health Care [STUDENT’S NAME] [INSTITUTION NAME] [INSTRUCTOR’S NAME] [CLASS] SOP Model in Pediatric Asthma Care Research on measures of health care quality frequently cites the Avedis Donabedian’s structure/process/outcome (SPO) model (as cited in Zinn & Morr, 1997). Donabedian further made distinctions between two types of outcomes. Firstly, technical outcomes which include physical and functional aspects of care and secondly, interpersonal outcomes include elements of the ‘art’ of medicine (Zinn & Morr, 1997). The specific episode of health care service that will be scrutinized using the Donabedian’s SPO model is the service for pediatric asthmatic care. Research has indicated that by 2005, there was 8 percent occurrences of asthma in the United States; 9 percent in children younger than 18 years old and an estimate of 5 percent of children had experienced an asthma attack (Pollart et al., 2011).

VIRGINIA MASON MEDICAL CENTER CODE OF ETHICS By Deborah L. McRae A research project report submitted to the faculty of Chapman University College in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Masters in Organizational Leadership February 2012 Introduction Simply stated, ethics refers to standards of behavior that tell us how human beings ought to act in the many situations in which they find themselves-as friends, parents, children, citizens, businesspeople, teachers, healthcare professionals, and so on. Background and Change to VM’s Code of Conduct I wrote a research project in 2010 to determine if the Toyota Principles could be implemented into the Healthcare Industry, from this research I discovered Virginia Mason is resolved to change Healthcare, they have revised their code of ethics many times and are changing Healthcare professionals along the way. Virginia Mason (VM) realized like many other healthcare organizations it needed an innovative management method to help make valid and assessable improvements in safety, quality, and service and staff satisfaction. To do so would require a bold shift in thinking “zero defects in healthcare” and focus placed on creating a mistake proof process. In general, healthcare has advanced in technology and understand of disease, but its business and management systems have changed little since the 1950s.
