Evaluating the application of a multidimensional model of clinical leadership

Researcher: Jackie Leigh

Few studies have identified the key components of an effective clinical leadership development model. This project evaluated the application of a multidimensional model of clinical leadership with eighty community healthcare leaders. Three key themes emerged that influenced the development of best practice principles for clinical leadership development: 

  1. Personal leadership development 
  2. Organisational leadership 
  3. The importance of multiprofessional action learning and reflective groups

Embedding the best practice principles of clinical leadership development within a multidimensional model of clinical leadership provides a promising approach to equipping the healthcare leader with those transferable leadership skills required to help them embark on a journey of lifelong leadership learning and producing the healthcare leader who is caring, compassionate and can confidently and effectively transform community services.
