The level of person-centredness of caremoderated the impact of leadership on the psychosocial climate.Conclusions and implications for nursing management The leadership behaviourof managers significantly impacts person-centred care practice and contributes tothe psychosocial climate for both staff and resid ents in aged care. This study isthe first empirically to confirm that middle manage rs have a central leadershiprole in develop ing and supporting person-cent red care practice, thereby creating apositive psychosocial climate and high qua lity care.
