This chapter outlines the challenges for leadership development and education throughout healthcare organisations and how this responsible yet compassionate leadership needs to be inculcated and encouraged in healthcare professionals and managers. It also considers the current debates regarding the potential to develop, train or teach ‘leadership’. It examines current vehicles for this leadership education through programmes and courses delivered at third-level institutions and through professional associations and their professional registration requirements, including organisation and health system-supported initiatives.
