“… 18 That can potentially undermine democracy. 19 Secondly, though this political-administrative interface promotes vertical control by the hierarchy, it led to conflicts between the state technocracy (eg, the Ministry of Health, the Regional Health Agencies, the Welfare elite), the operating core (eg, hospital physicians), and frontline workers (eg, nurses).
