It is the responsibility of the organization to create a culture of evidence-base practice. Instructing nursing students about EBP can require different teaching and evaluation strategies to practicing nurses (Streurer, 2010). The questions that arise from a practicing nurse may provide more information than a student of nursing. Therefore, Streuer urges organizations to adopt a model for evidence-based practice, such as the Stevens (2004) ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation. The phases in this model move from discovery of a clinical practice question to the dissemination of EBP findings (Streurer, 2010).
However, nurses often refrain from involvement in quality improvement projects and processes, due to their lack of comfort and familiarity with their roles. According to Tschannen, Aebersold, Kocan, Lundy and Potempa (2015), nurses’ lack of involvement in quality improvement processes is often partially due to their lack of exposure and involvement throughout their education. Tschannen, Aebersold, Kocan, Lundy and Potempa (2015), also found that incorporation of quality improvement processes within nursing curriculum improved nurses’ competency, leadership skills and ability to become involved with such projects. Therefore, in order to learn how to lead effectively, and act as active members in quality improvement processes and projects, nurses must be given tools and exposure early

Moreover, doctors' altruism towards their patients and others has been less well examined and is understood, as opposed to express, in explanations about medicinal expert qualities and dispositions. Furthermore, the altruistic conduct by doctors may incorporate, for instance, keeping on working or giving casual medicinal exhortation outside contracted hours, giving free treatment to poor patients in charge for service health care frameworks, and a general eagerness to go the additional mile in expert working.

However, with effective leaders present in different branches of the industry the number of preventable medical errors might significantly decrease, and the quality of medical procedures and services might improve, accordingly. Considering the presented circumstances, it becomes clear that the health care industry requires thorough and powerful interventions, especially from the position of the nursing staff that in most of the cases is in the process of the closest cooperation with the patients, their families, and treating physicians. Therefore, it becomes apparent that the issue is not always present in the type of a facility but is more actual for the people, who work at the facility. Lack of motivation, opportunities for professional and personal development, possibilities for free decision making regarding the patient’s condition all contribute
