Effective Leadership and Patient Safety Culture - Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation
Volume 35, No. Effective leadership is necessary in medicine to foster an organizational culture that promotes patient safety. By fostering an environment of psychological safety that encourages others to feel safe communicating issues and speaking up with concerns, leaders are able to act decisively and timely to protect patients and employees. Ultimately, leaders who promote a positive organizational climate contribute to higher job satisfaction among employees, decreased burnout, fewer medical errors, and an overall improved culture of safety.
Patient Safety Culture: A Review of the Nursing Home Literature and Recommendations for Practice
The purpose of this paper is to review existing research on whistleblowing in healthcare in order to develop an evidence base for policy and research. A narrative review, based on systematic literature protocols developed within the management field. The authors identify valuable insights on the factors that influence healthcare whistleblowing, and how organizations respond, but also substantial gaps in the coverage of the literature, which is overly focused on nursing, has been largely carried out in the UK and Australia, and concentrates on the earlier stages of the whistleblowing process. The review identifies gaps in the literature on whistleblowing in healthcare, but also draws attention to an unhelpful lack of connection with the much larger mainstream literature on whistleblowing. This paper provides a platform for future research on whistleblowing in healthcare, at a time when policymakers are increasingly aware of its role in ensuring patient safety and care quality.
