Improving Patient Outcomes

A resource for ward leaders

Improving Patient Outcomes is aimed at ward and department leaders and prospective leaders. The evidence for effective team working and its impact on patient care is readily available and as a leader you do not have to make enormous changes to the way you work to have an effect.

All the chapters link with each other but they also stand alone. You are not expected to work on your own to implement changes but to seek out help from your peers and colleagues within your team and organisation.

  • Improving patient outcomes
