What is it about?

The interaction between organisational culture and intention to participate in research and development (R&D) is likely to be an important factor in implementation strategies in primary care organisations for innovative thinking and change practice.

Why is it important?

This paper is one of the very few studies to investigate the influence of organisational culture on the intensions to engage in R&D.
