Abstract: A head nurse as a leader should be able to make decisions in ethical dilemmas by selecting a leadership style that would work best in the particular situation and context. The purpose of the overall study was to identify the issues and explore experiences of head nurses regarding the application of leadership styles in ethical dilemmas when they make decisions. The research questions were as follows: How is the ethical dilemma – and its levels – characterised in a health care context? For what reasons do head nurses apply leadership styles when they make decisions in ethical dilemmas? What are consequences of the leadership styles applied by head nurses in ethical dilemmas? What are the leadership styles applied by head nurses in ethical dilemmas? The study was implemented in three phases during the period 2009 to 2014. In Phase I, the systematic literature review (n=21) was conducted. In Phase II, the qualitative study was implemented with (n=49) head nurses working in major hospitals and primary health care centres. Conventional inductive latent qualitative content analysis was applied to the data. In Phase III, the quantitative study was conducted with (n=278) head nurses working in five major state-funded clinical hospitals in Lithuania. The outcomes of the systematic literature review (Phase I) revealed that scientific resources give neither information about the application of leadership styles in ethical dilemmas among head nurses nor about the dominant leadership styles among head nurses when they make decisions in ethical dilemmas. The findings (Phase II) manifested that head nurses make decisions in complex ethical dilemmas in which nursing, nurses’ competence and self-confidence, organisational structures, inter-professional cooperation, and leadership are directly involved.
