Quality improvement and patient safety have been shown to improve when physicians are engaged and committed to working within their institutional settings. However barriers may exist that either deter physicians from engagement or do not provide them with the necessary skills to do so. Health care organizations can and should remove barriers and develop systems to engage physicians in their quality improvement efforts, including team training for patient safety. Doing so requires an understanding of the most common barriers and developing strategies that address both institutional and physician concerns in a process that is beneficial for patients, physicians, and health care institutions.
