Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Reporting adverse events is one of the first steps towards safer patient treatment. To achieve this, attention should be focused on developing or improving the safety culture in healthcare. Managers are responsible for the successful functioning of healthcare facilities and the resulting enhanced reporting. Managers achieve their success in an institution through the four core tasks of managers: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Because the core functions of managers affect the success of a facility and, even earlier, the processes within a facility, including the success of adverse event reporting, the chapter reviews the literature on the functions of management in relation to adverse event reporting in healthcare. The content of the chapter will be helpful to all those who are involved in safety incident reporting from the perspective of the core functions of managers and who contribute to their socially responsible behavior and promoting sustainable development.
