Abstract

This chapter discusses the way Human Resource Management (HRM) might support, leadership, management and improvement in healthcare, introduces three following related chapters, and finally discusses their common themes and implications. Before doing so, however, it is useful to discuss what management, leadership, improvement and HRM mean, as they are often referred to and enacted in ambiguous or contradictory ways. Drawing on common themes in the following chapters, the chapter concludes that supportive health care contexts and professionals, particularly ‘hybrid’ managers-professionals, are necessary to support HRM to, in turn, support the development of leadership and improvement in health care.
