In this assignment, I will briefly discuss the framework developed and implemented for quality of care in our healthcare system. I will then discuss the different aspects between leadership and management within the healthcare system, and how the role of the nurse manger can improve quality of care through their management skills. I will also discuss what management is and how the role the nurse manager can also enhance the quality of care through quality improvement initiatives, such as; patient safety.
