The structural pre-requisites for clinical leadership.

Degeling, P. and Maxwell, S. (2002) 'The structural pre-requisites for clinical leadership.', Journal for clinical excellence., 4 (3). pp. 289-293.


Following a critical review of the conceptual foundations of current calls for leadership, this paper assesses the extent to which the preconditions for clinical leadership are evident in healthcare settings. In detail, it examines how prevailing professional cultures may be affecting the followership of clinical leaders. It then assess the extent to which existing health policies, structures and methods are aligned to structurally underpin the authority that leaders are meant to exercise.
