Leadership and engagement for improvement in the NHS: Together we can
posted by Research Admin on 23 May 2012
Leadership and engagement for improvement in the NHS: Together we can makes the case for engaging staff, patients and boards and for building relationships across systems of care.
Building on the work of The King's Fund's 2011 Leadership Commission, the 2012 review has taken evidence from a number of national and international experts. Their evidence makes a case for leadership and engagement:
- organisations whose staff are engaged deliver a better patient experience, fewer errors and higher staff morale
- engaging patients in their care can ensure that care is more appropriate and improve outcomes
- increasing recognition of the importance of integrated care requires leaders to be effective across systems, both within and outside the NHS.
