The main goal of this work is to study an initial-boundary value problem for a nonlinear pseudoparabolic equation with logarithmic nonlinearity. By using the potential well method and a logarithmic Sobolev inequality, we obtain results of existence or nonexistence of global weak solutions. In addition, we also provide sufficient conditions for the large time decay of global weak solutions and the finite time blow-up of weak solutions. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

This study examines the primary determinants of self-medications among urban citizens in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam using survey data. Employing logistic models, the article finds that the probability of self-medication is positively associated with the respondents’ high school degree or vocational certificate, married status, and income while it is negatively related to employed status, the number of children, the geographical distance from home to the nearest hospital, doing exercise, and living in a central region. Meanwhile, using Poisson models the article finds that the frequency of self-medication is positively associated with the respondents’ high school and vocational, married, income, and chronic disease while the frequency of self-medication is adversely related to male, employed, children number, distance, being close to health professional and central areas. © 2017 Taylor & Francis

This study measures the public preferences for cultivated land protection as a case study of Wenling City, China, using the choice experiment (CE) approach. The estimation results indicate that the most important attribute for cultivated land protection in Wenling City was land facility, followed by land fertility and then by landscape improvement. The monthly willingness-to-pay of a typical household for the cultivated land protection from the status quo to the highest attribute level is calculated as RMB23.79 (US$3.66), and the total annual willingness-to-pay for the entire population of the study area is RMB232 million (US$35.7 million). This study allows us to provide policymakers with quantitative information related to cultivated land protection programs. The study concludes that CE is a reliable tool in the analysis of respondent preferences for the development of suitable cultivated land protection schemes in China. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Purpose – When knowledge is shared, it flows beyond individual level to add to organizational knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to seek an insight into the role of servant leadership in leveraging knowledge sharing among public employees, thereby enriching organizational knowledge in public organizations. The study also investigates the individual-level mediation effect of public service motivation (PSM), as well as organization-level moderating effect of corporate social responsibility (CSR) for the relationship between servant leadership and knowledge sharing. Design/methodology/approach – The data on the research variables were collected from 562 employees and 197 department managers in public organizations of electricity, telephone, and water industries in Vietnam context. Findings – Research results provided evidence for the mediating effect of PSM for the servant leadership-knowledge sharing linkage. This linkage was also found to be positively moderated by CSR. Originality/value – This research extends PSM literature by shedding light on the mediating role of PSM for the effect of servant leadership on knowledge sharing, thereby demonstrating the convergence of servant leadership, knowledge sharing, and PSM research streams. © 2016, Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Purpose - This study aims to fathom the role of nursing governance as a mechanism to activate the chain effect from corporate social responsibility (CSR) through psychological contract to knowledge sharing, which in turn reduces clinical errors in hospitals in the Vietnam context. Clinical errors not merely result from human factors but also from mechanisms which influence human factors. Design/methodology/approach - The clues for the research model were established through structural equation modeling-based analysis of cross-sectional data from 233 nurses of Vietnam-based hospitals. Findings - Research findings unveiled the positive correlation between nursing governance and ethical CSR as well as the negative correlations between nursing governance and legal CSR or economic CSR. Ethical CSR was found to have positive effect on psychological contract, whereas legal or economic CSR was found to have negative effect on psychological contract. The chain effects from psychological contract through knowledge sharing to clinical error control were also attested in this inquiry. Originality/value - Research results have contributed to literature in some ways, for example, expanding health-care quality and patient safety literature through the chain of antecedents (nursing governance, CSR, psychological contract and knowledge sharing) to clinical error control, underscoring the role of psychological contract in cultivating knowledge sharing and adding organizational outcomes such as knowledge sharing and clinical error control to the nursing governance literature. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Clinical Governance | Year: 2014

Purpose - Brand equity of hospitals is built on patient care service quality. Through the testing of the hypotheses on the relationships between brand equity and its precursors, the purpose of this paper is to examine if clinical governance effectiveness is driven by corporate social responsibility (CSR), and if clinical governance effectiveness influences patient care service quality which in turn influences brand equity. Design/methodology/approach - In total, 417 responses in completed form returned from selfadministered structured questionnaires relayed to 835 clinical staff members underwent the structural equation modeling-based analysis. Findings - CSR, as the data divulges, is a strong predictor of clinical governance effectiveness which yields high patient care quality and brand equity of the hospital. Originality/value - The expedition to test research hypotheses constructed layer by layer of CSR-based model of hospital brand equity in which high levels of CSR among clinical members in the hospital activates clinical governance mechanism, without which, initiatives to improve patient care service quality may not be successfully implemented to augment brand equity of Vietnam-based hospitals. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Food value chain analysis is a key and flexible methodology to enhance the values to farmers and end-consumers. Da Xanh pomelo is an important fruit sector of Ben Tre economy. The purpose of this study is to understand the value chain, to estimate the financial contribution, and to measure the competitiveness. This paper employs the theory of value chain approach for analyzing entities participating in planting, processing and commercializing Da Xanh pomelo, calculating added value, and comparing efficiency indicators. The result confirms economic contribution to Ben Tre, reasonable benefit distribution to the actors, and the pomelo value chain is more competitive than other sectors. The paper also explains how value chain analysis methodology assesses and promotes the competitiveness of an agricultural sector. The survey further identifies current problems of pestilent insects and potential supply surplus of the fruit. © Canadian Center of Science and Education.

This study investigates the energy consumption-growth nexus in Vietnam. The causal relationship between the logarithm of per capita energy consumption (LPCEC) and the logarithm of per capita GDP (LPCGDP) during the 1976-2010 period is examined using the threshold cointegration and vector error correction models for Granger causality tests. The estimation results indicate that the LPCEC and LPCGDP for Vietnam are cointegrated and that there is a strong uni-directional causality running from LPCGDP to LPCEC, but not vice versa. It is also found that the effect of LPCGDP on LPCEC in Vietnam is time-varying (i.e. significantly different between before and after the structural breakpoint, 1992). The research results strongly support the neoclassical perspective that energy consumption is not a limiting factor to economic growth in Vietnam. Accordingly, an important policy implication resulting from this analysis is that government can pursue the conservation energy policies that aim at curtailing energy use for environmental friendly development purposes without creating severe effects on economic growth. The energy should be efficiently allocated into more productive sectors of the economy.

The dynamic growth of a supply chain in an incessantly changing environment emanates from the dynamics of an organisation as well as its supply chain members. The primary aim of this research is to investigate the relationships between supply chain agility and its dynamic precursors including organisational ambidexterity and external knowledge sharing. The research further examines the moderating role of competitive intelligence for the relationship between organisational ambidexterity and supply chain agility. A sample of 381 respondents from chemical manufacturing companies in Vietnam produced the data for analysis. The research results shed light on the chain effect from organisational ambidexterity through external knowledge sharing to supply chain agility. The moderating role that CI plays in the relationship between organisational ambidexterity and supply chain agility was also verified. The findings from the research broaden supply chain literature through establishing the positive effect of organisational ambidexterity on supply chain agility with CI as a moderator for this effect. © 2016 Taylor & Francis
