New research published by Dr Hossam Elamir, ISQua Fellow and Fellowship Ambassador Featured

Dr Elamir shared the following introduction to his paper:


The field of leadership in healthcare and how it impacts culture, quality and safety is under-researched in the Kuwait/Arab region despite its high importance and impact. The objective of this paper is to explore and assess organizational culture and quality of care, and measure their association with transformational/transactional styles of leadership in the government general hospitals in Kuwait. Transformational leadership is one of the most effective leadership styles in health services, and has a prominent impact on the growth of leadership development strategies. This paper is the second from a research project aimed at assessing leadership styles, organizational culture, patient safety initiatives, and quality of care in six government general hospitals in Kuwait.
