My colleagues and I have completed a research project at a pediatric facility recently. We wondered if the clinicians who work on a unit see themselves as a team. In what aspect of collaboration do they think they excel and where do they not? Finally, is there a connection between family satisfaction and the degree of collaboration they perceive on a unit? Three open-ended questions asked their opinion on what worked well and where they were in need of education or process change. We are finishing up a manuscript soon.
Are you working on or interested in this area of research- collaboration in practice, or are you involved in organizational development to improve collaboration between the professions to improve patient care and patient and family satisfaction?
