Authentic leadership (β=.54, p=<.001) was reported as the most influencing factor, followed by team effectiveness (β=.24, p<.001) and safety management system (β=.21, p<.001). Safety management system (β=.38, p=.002) and authentic leadership (β=.12, p=.002) had indirect effects on patient safety culture as well.
