Informal groups, networks, colleagues
Self-report (e.g., survey, questionnaire, self-rating)

Survey items are constructed so that doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals can rate the two other groups. The authors term this method "round robin" based on other work.
Source of Data:

Notes for Data Sources:
Inpatient unit registered nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals in 15 community and academic hospitals in Toronto, Canada
Reported perceptions, experiences of working relationships, teamwork
Notes for Content:
Based on the validity study with nursing respondents, the 13-item tool was found to have three factors measuring:
13 items per group rated for a total of 26 items; time requirements are not specified.
26 item 4-point agreement scale ranging from strongly disagree (1) to strongly agree (4).
Healthcare professionals are given the full tool (i.e., 78 items) and asked to rate only those in the section for their profession.
The authors used average scores for items loading on each of the three factors. Scoring instructions are provided.
