Kristensen S, Hammer A, Bartels P, et al. International journal for quality in health care : journal of the International Society for Quality in Health Care. 2015;27:499-506.

As with prior studies, leaders expressed more positive safety culture than frontline clinicians. This work suggests that ongoing investment in safety culture is needed.
