Critical thinking stop point 36.1

The sorts of things that you may have considered to include:

  • The imperative to ensure that ‘good’ leadership is in place in clinical practice.
  • The challenges in clinical practice – whether at strategic level (e.g. the need to manage complex healthcare systems on constrained budgets), or at operational level (e.g. the need to ensure that patients in any clinical situation receive high-quality care even within constrained resources).
  • The need for individuals to develop their leadership skills, no matter what level of the organisation they work in so that all interactions and aspects of practice can be led well.
