Strategies for Leadership - Hospital Executives and
Their Role in Patient Safety

Jim Conway, COO of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and steering committee member of The Massachusetts Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors, published these leadership strategies in the form of a self-assessment tool that can be used by all executives involved in patient safety. It is not intended to seek a "pass/fail" grade, but rather to give leaders a range of choices to consider, periodically revisit, and use to trigger action. Completing the self-assessment with others could actually be powerful, not only for setting priorities, but also for reinforcing the rewards of honest appraisal.
