METHODS: Open-ended taped interviews were conducted with 15 nurse managers, 11 chief physicians, three hospital directors and three politicians from three Swedish cities. FINDINGS: The main theme found was power and three dependent themes were identified as; power within activities, being in power and freedom to act.
