Notes that medical participation in organization-wide quality programmes and leadership of quality is commonly viewed as the key to a successful programme. Reviews and reports research into doctors' involvement in such programmes as distinct from doctors' involvement in medical quality activities. Reveals the lack of systematic evidence on the subject, suggests areas for future research, and summarizes what is known. Gives recommendations based on reported research and experience for quality training for doctors and how medical managers might engage their colleagues and other professions in quality programmes.
