The study adopts a cross-sectional survey approach utilising adaptations of questionnaires developed originally by Canadian researchers (Irvine et al., 1999; Laschinger et al., 2001) to explore both structural and psychological aspects of empowerment. This is an interesting paper which is relevant and timely to current health care. Challenges over the past decade relating to the quality of nursing care have led to increased focus on whether services are well led (Care Quality Commission, 2017). Increasingly there is realisation that traditional models of leadership need to be replaced with collective leadership approaches (West et al., 2014). The paper is of relevance to chief nurses, leadership consultants, human resource trainers, and nurse managers themselves. The study adds to the collective narrative around leadership at middle manager level with a speciﬁc focus on empowerment, which is under-researched in this group of nurses, suggesting implications
