Authors' objectives: Clinical microsystems' - and how well they work - are the focus of this call for research proposals. A clinical microsystem can be any health care team providing services to patients, for example, a General Practice, a hospital ward or a clinical unit. This proposal is to find out whether a way of trying to improve how staff in hospital wards work - called the 'Productive Ward' - has been successful in NHS acute hospitals in England and to help managers, doctors and nurses who are continuing to use the approach to make it as useful as possible.
