Non-Magnet, Magnet, and Magnet Journey Hospitals needed for Team Trustworthiness Study

The importance of teamwork in healthcare delivery is well-supported in the literature. Assisting teams in creating cultures that lead to high performance requires an understanding of the precursors.

Dr. Nancy Ballard and Dr. Lynn Varagona are recruiting hospitals to participate in a national study of a perceived team trustworthiness indicator and unit-level outcomes. Participation involves (1) administering a 5-minute online questionnaire to unit/department staff, and (2) providing particular unit-level quality and performance outcome measures.
