Principal Investigators

Dates: 1/1/13 – 12/31/13

Abstract: In this CRB application, the feasibility of using the Systems RN-MD Communication Evaluation protocol (a mixed set of measures including surveys, interviews and work observation) will be refined and determined with medical-surgical nurses and physicians.

The objective of this study is: To evaluate the feasibility of using the Systems RN-MD Communication Evaluation Protocol in a one-hospital sample of RNs and MDs by determining:

  1. Data variability
  2. Number of subjects needed for qualitative data redundancy
  3. Practicality of data collection
