Abstract
This paper reviews the findings of a research project based on a field case study that involved qualitative research of current or former healthcare professionals from middle to upper management who are or were involved in senior decision-making linked to potential collaboration with the Canadian Forces and the police sector. Using Scott’s three pillars of Institutional Analysis (IA) as a framework of analysis, the purpose of this research was to explore whether any attitudes or behaviours existed amongst healthcare personnel that would create social or cognitive barriers to institutional collaboration with police and/or military personnel in a public safety context by analysing the regulative, normative and cultural-cognitive pillars of the healthcare sector. The study found that there were significant potential social or cognitive barriers within the healthcare sector which influenced collaboration with the military or the police sectors.
