1. Penney, Betty Christine. Getting clearer on the concept: accountability in the Canadian Health System.

Degree: School of Public Administration, 2018, University of Victoria

As the public sector and specifically the health sector, undergo reform throughout the Western world in order to find systems that work better and cost less, the phenomenon of accountability is of increasing concern to policy-makers. Although the public administration concept of accountability is ancient, and has been debated and described in the languages of many diverse disciplines, little academic work is available on its meaning or application to the Canadian Health System. Without a clearer understanding of the concept, the basis for improving accountability in the Canadian Health System will remain unknown. This dissertation seeks to clarify the concept of health system accountability and elucidate the issues related to improving accountability in the system. This is accomplished through a concept analysis methodology using two qualitative data collection strategies: a structured review of Canadian literature on accountability from the domains of health policy/administration, professional and popular literature sources; and an interview process whereby 24 health system leaders from five Canadian provinces were interviewed. The findings reveal that the concept of accountability, in its current explicit, performance-based form, is relatively new to Canadian health system policy discussions, its use only beginning in the 1980’s. Prior to this, accountability was implicit in the delegation of health matters to self-regulating professions. The concept evolved from public administration theory and continues to evolve as a health concept. An attempt is made to disentangle the concept of health system accountability from its many related concepts and references. The defining attributes of accountability are: a performance assessment according to standards/goals; an obligation to render an account; and an answerability to the community served. Antecedents or pre-requisites to accountability include a renewed culture, strategic direction, citizen engagement, information management, performance measurement and reporting. Consequences of accountability are: a sustainable health system, increased public confidence, improved health outcomes and quality services, added bureaucracy and uncertainty. Although there is a majority view on the defining attributes, there are several conceptions of accountability: as a theoretical or ethical construct; as gesture; as a formal system or set of practices; as an on-going political process; and as desired outcomes or results. Likewise several normative modes or models exist: the historical professional model, the emerging managerial model and the potential citizen participation model. These are all encompassed within the broader political framework. Also, accountability is a multi-level construct: personal, organizational and political. There are several policy issues related to accountability and democratic governments in today’s modem societies. Within the health sector, the key issues identified, by health system leader research participants, as… Advisors/Committee Members: Cutt, James (supervisor).

2. Wikkramatileke, Rhordon Craig. An annotated script : conversations with continuing educators about the creation of continuing education programs in a university setting.

Degree: Department of Curriculum and Instruction, 2017, University of Victoria

Though continuing education is often a vibrant and thriving function in modern universities, paradoxically, little is known about the content and organization of the knowledge structures that continuing educators employ as they go about creating continuing education programs in university settings. Drawing upon the entrepreneurship literature (Mitchell and Chesteen, 1995; Mitchell, 2001), (Vesper, 1996) and the adult education program planning literature (Caffarella, 2002), this inquiry assesses the robustness and applicability of scripting as a method of examining this aspect of practice. Advisors/Committee Members: Oberg, Antoinette A. (supervisor), Cutt, James (supervisor).
