Invitation to participate in research project: HPH — A prescription for building institutional trust?

Whilst successful implementation of HPH can bring about a range of benefits including improved population health outcomes, organisational re-orientation towards the promotion of health and a multiplication of health gains, can its implementation also generate additional increments of institutional trust?

This is the focus of a mixed method research project being undertaken by a student in the Graduate School of Business at the University of Newcastle, Australia.  The research is titled: ‘Re-alignment of organisational strategic direction: The role of trust in the implementation process: A cross organisational case study of the implementation of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Health Promoting Hospital Initiative (HPH)’ and is concerned with strategic implementation of organisational change, in particular, when organisations commit to a re-alignment of strategic direction.

The research acknowledges that a certain amount of institutional trust is needed, as a prerequisite, for the organisational change required for HPH implementation.  However, the research is focused on whether successful implementation of HPH can generate additional increments of institutional trust and whether this may then further drive or extend implementation of HPH.

Invitation to participate in the research project

The research team welcomes your participation and thanks you in advance for contributing to this research project.

The research consists of two stages—quantitative and qualitative.

Quantitative stage


All members of the International HPH Network are invited to participate in this stage of the research project by completing an anonymous online questionnaire.

You can complete the online anonymous questionnaire here

Completion of the questionnaire should take approximately 30 minutes. 
The questionnaire is anonymous and it will not be possible to identify you from your answers.  Further, all data transferred over the internet will be encrypted. 

Questionnaires should be completed by no later than Monday 16 November 2009. 

Thank you to those members who have completed the questionnaire.  Your time and expertise is greatly appreciated.

Qualitative stage

Non-proportional quota sampling will be used to invite a specified number of members of the International HPH Network to participate in an asynchronous in-depth email interview.  Invitations to participate in this stage will be sent to the selected members during November 2009.

Précis of research outcomes

A précis of the research outcomes will be submitted as a contribution to the HPH Newsletter in 2010.
