  • Priority will be given to research that combines innovative leadership development practices with measurable outcomes, such as:
    • Clinician (e.g., engagement, well-being, team development, professional development).
    • Care processes (e.g., adverse drug event reporting, time for first dose).
    • Patient (e.g., satisfaction, A1C, adherence).
    • Organizational (e.g., productivity, turnover, innovation).

Funding Information
