Developing skills in clinical leadership for ward sisters


Over the years leadership on the wards have changed. With increased tick boxes and paper work on this or that new initiative. In the process of change the most important of all got thrown to the back. We all know that is good patient care. Leaders need to be connected to the primary source of the job most especially in nursing, as in the heart of caring is the knowing of the patient. If one does not know the patients they are caring for and the leaders have no connection with the patients then the job becomes a factory job where patient flow, adimission and discharges are the order of the day. This factory type flow of patients is main priority in the hospital I work in. This is a very sad state of affair.
