The final tool version in the series of studies contains two subscales. "Quality of Care/Process" combines two previous scales measuring individuals' beliefs about the "quality of care" that interprofessional teams can deliever, and the "costs of team care," into one scale. "Physician Centrality" measures individual attitudes toward the authority of physicians in interprofessional teams.
The authors recommend the14-item Quality of Care/Process measure finalized in the final Phase III analysis along with the 6-item Physician Centrality measure identified in the Phase II factor analysis. No time length was specified.
6-point Likert-type scale ranging from strongly disagree (0) to strongly agree (5).
Paper and pencil questionnaires were administered. No specific administration instructions are provided.
The items from the Quality of Care/Process and Physician Centrality measures are likely averaged separately to form two scores. No specific scoring instruction are provided.
