It's all about flow in a complex adaptive system



It's all about flow in a complex adaptive system



Journal of Nursing Administration 44(4): 190-193



As systems evolve over time, their natural tendency is to become increasingly more complex. Studies in the field of complex systems have generated new perspectives on the application of management strategies in health systems. Much of this research appears as a natural extension of the cross-disciplinary field of systems theory. In this article, I discuss the Constructal Law and its impact on nurse workflow.
