6.2 Create appropriate dissemination processes to gain commitment from stakeholders in an organisation In the implementation of a strategic plan, it is important that the company involves its stakeholders in the change process.

Kass-Bartelmes & Hughes (2003) identified the lack of communication between the patients, family members, and healthcare providers. Information given was too complicated to understand which in turn causes confusion about treatments available. Similarly, different research expressed the need for early discussion when the patients are still healthy although the doctors may find it difficult and uncomfortable initiating the conversation leading to missed opportunities. However, it can instil hope if it is carried out delicately (Ng,
Also, communication as well as cognitive deficits may present a problem limiting the patient's ability to participate or cooperate during the initial triage process to identify chief complaints, symptoms and history. The operator's expert judgment is usually subjective in nature and depends on experience and expertise of the operator on duty, severity of illness or injury of patient or availability of resources. Another reason is that the treatment depends on the level of urgency of medical attention, and decisions based on operator's primary call dialog must be produced in the shortest time possible. Further, in practice triage decisions are not consistent with existing triage guidelines because of the ad hoc nature with which triage decisions are made especially in rare and severe medical emergencies, such as mass casualties (e.g., Bali bombing, September 11 crisis). Moreover, the stressful environment where patients arrive in pain and frightened contributes to the complexity and uncertainty of the decision situation.
These negative perceptions such as the inability to change amongst the elderly may result in discrimination and prejudice towards them. These negative views on one’s aging may cause poor health, lower self-esteem and lower the wellbeing of an individual. It is thus essential to seek intervention to promote positive views on aging through research. Research such as those conducted by psychologists to resolve the myths surrounding aging such as the inability to change may go a long way in making people have a positive view on aging. Especially for the case where the findings of the research render the myth inaccurate.

This gap will result when the service provider is unable to meet the customers’ wants and needs with the specific target standard level of service quality. The gap between the service delivery and the service quality specification is the next gap. This may occur when there is a poor training of the workers, lack of teamwork, and the unwillingness of the workers to meet the standard performance that has set by the management. Another gap is the gap between external communication and the service delivery. Normally, media advertisement will influence the customers’ expectation and they will usually rely on the external communication in order to set their expectation.
