In contrast, HCNs frequently use the Chinese word, "Xin" or "heart" in describing their trust-building experiences with expatriate leaders.
When selecting expatriates, there are different advantages to choosing parent country nationals (PCN), host country nationals (HCN), and third country nationals (TCN).
Other claims payers are reluctant to form HCNs, for example, largely because of what many consider to be too much regulation.
For example, Franko (1973) found that most companies preferred to hire HCNs in a start-up stage because of a perceived need to adapt to local conditions.
Three problem-focused strategies were measured: (a) showing tolerance and patience when interacting with HCNs, which measures the extent to which the expatriate accepts that cultural misunderstandings will occur; (b) solving problems responsibly, which measures the extent to which the expatriate acknowledges his own role in problems and accepts responsibility for solving them; and (c) being socially involved with host country nationals, defined as the extent to which the expatriate manager seeks significant interaction with HCNs.
Company A and company B did not employ any TCNs, but adopted different HR policies between the PCNs and HCNs, and among different groups of employees within the PCNs and HCNs.
This is the most common type of governance system in the HCNs of the SUS (1,6,19), although equally essential in this network are the definitions of care practices and protocols, established by clinical governance and the institutional, managerial, and financial arrangements organizing the managing bodies of public governance (4,5).
We found that the expression levels of the glycolysis-related proteins Glut-1, hexokinase II, CAIX, and MCT4 were significantly higher in HCNs than in FNs.
Although it is clear that PCNs are expatriates, it is often overlooked that so are HCNs and TCNs when they are transferred to operations outside their home countries.
The percentages of HCNs and nonneoplastic Hurthle cell lesions exhibiting TV or ICL were calculated, and statistically significant differences were noted.
Mendes (3) explains that SAC organisation rests on a new model of care built up from scientific knowledge derived particularly from the theory of HCNs and models of care for chronic conditions and sustained by two main pillars: coordination of care between SAC and PHC and construction of SAC as a secondary point of ambulatory care in a HCN coordinated by the PHC function.
Coordinate the resources properly is essential for HCNs. There are several kinds of resource allocation ways [3], including co-channel deployment (CCD), orthogonal deployment (OD) and partially shared deployment (PSD).
