Our mission, to humanise healthcare, often requires cultural change within healthcare organisations. Organisational culture affects relationships between staff and managers, and between staff and patients. Our Schwartz programme and HOPE network both actively seek to develop the culture of healthcare organisations, by providing a supportive forum for reflection and supporting professionals concerned with improving patient experience in their organisations. Our research has highlighted ways for organisations to improve employee engagement, stressing the importance of culture in achieving an engaged workforce.
