Unhelpful diagrams #2

From the same report:

Figure 2: A framework for the analysis of the factors influencing patients’ experience
Unhelpful diagram

Note that this is a ‘framework’ rather than a model. The ‘framework’ is that patients are nested within staff, department, hospital and country. This is a model, in that it suggests multilevel modelling will be needed. But it’s hardly a radical idea, and one not really made clearer by the diagram.
