Abstract

Managers are uniquely placed to facilitate quality improvement (QI), yet little empirical evidence exists about their influence in engaging clinicians in QI. To address this gap, a qualitative study was undertaken and revealed 2 themes: balancing being present with letting frontline staff lead their QI projects, and leveraging flexibility in scheduling with protected time. Efforts are needed to enable managers to engage clinicians and staff in local QI efforts.
