The sociological survey covered 312 principal workers if the research institute of complex problems of cardiovascular diseases in 2012 and 311 individuals in 2014. It is established that most of the workers saw no effect of implementation of system of quality management. At that, the percentage of workers complaining that system complicated their job diminished reliably. The percentage of positive responses concerning usefulness of implementation of system decreased from 36.3% in 2012 to 32.5% in 2014 (p=0.31). The analysis of responses of 2014 established that the greatest positive effect from implementation of system of quality management was marked by executive personnel and minimal by junior medical personnel and “research worker-physician”. The system of management is obscure to the most of junior personnel and in less degree to executive personnel. The degree of involvement of personnel determines effectiveness of any modern management system. At the initial stage of implementation of system of quality management the opposition of personnel is inevitable which requires from administration patience and commitment to principles of quality, widespread application of educational programs and moral and material reward for achievements in quality area. The application of sociological approach in evaluation of opinions of staff will permit distinguishing problems and to formulate priority tasks for their step-by-step elimination.

Petrova L.E.


The professional universe of physician is considered as the result of subjective re-definition of those objective specificities provided to physician by society in connection with professional activities. These are totality of social communications and relationships developing in relation to health and disease around professional role of physician. The professional universe of physician is a system of formal and non-formal interactions regulating vertically and horizontally. These interactions involve physician and such agents of social environment as administrators of medical organizations, patients, family and friendly circles, public opinion, colleges. The result of conversion of economic, cultural and social capital of professional in area of health support is an ontological content of professional universe of physician. In epistemological sense this is a complex structure (cognitive and emotional components are combined with behavioral component) developing under reflexive perception of implementation of social role. The considered concept supplements modern and classical studies of group of physicians emphasizing importance of description of existence (subjective universe) in addition to characteristic of essence (objectively specified role).
