Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to test the link between transformational leadership and the quality of nursing care, thus helping to determine if an emphasis on developing transformational leaders is an important organisational strategy to improve the quality of nursing care. Specifically, the aim of the study was to describe the association between the leadership style of the ward sister and the quality of nursing care given by the staff that they manage, across an acute hospital trust in Northern Ireland. It also controlled for other contextual factors (span of control, grade mix and skill mix) that are postulated to affect the quality of nursing care.
