[Extract] You go to the ward; something feels wrong — the care is not as person-centred as you wish, not conducive to patient safety, or not consistent with wellness guidelines for your colleagues. You discover that the problem is commonplace. You are losing your sleep over it. This means you care enough to notice that there is a problem and you want something done about it. Then you talk to someone responsible. They criticise you for overreacting or doing something outside of your job description; you feel demoralised.

Having worked in the health system for a few decades and effected a variety of teleoncology reforms,1, 2 we would have benefited from leadership advice early in our careers. This would have made us more effective at leading change and potentially prevented us suffering moral injury from time to time. In this article, we share our learnings and experiences of pathways to leading change.
