Table 3 The result of the confirmatory factor analysis. Model is a reasonable representation of the data (χ 2 (59) = 73.7, p = 0.095, RMSEA = 0.000, and CFI = 1.00). Loadings are unstandardised.

From: The structure of quality systems is important to the process and outcome, an empirical study of 386 hospital departments in Sweden
