Nurses 'think more negatively' than junior doctors

  • Comment

Nurses and junior doctors have very different views on the level of teamwork between the two groups in critical care, according to researchers.

They used a psychometric measurement called the Baggs Collaboration and Satisfaction about Care Decisions tool to assess the views of 31 nurses and 46 junior doctors working in a 24-bed intensive care unit.

The authors said: “Nurses consistently gave more negative responses on every survey question than junior doctors. While nurses said that the amount of collaboration was inadequate, junior doctors were satisfied. Junior doctors’ views are similar to those of more experienced physicians observed in previous studies.”
