Top ten resources looking at culture and leadership

Nurturing a safety culture is essential to reduce harm in an organisation.  The importance of a just culture is illustrated in “Annie’s story” and ‘How can leaders influence a safety culture?’  An engaged style of leadership is required to influence a safety culture.  This is discussed in the King’s Fund document ‘Together we can’ and ‘Leadership defines culture in healthcare’.  A tool that can be used to assess a safety culture is the Manchester Patient Safety Framework.
