Abstract

Interprofessional providers of healthcare services need to function effectively as a team to deliver patient-focused interventions that are safe, of high quality, and clinically effective to generate improved patient outcomes. An academic pediatric hospital conducted a descriptive, correlational study to (a) describe clinicians' perceptions of interprofessional (IP) collaboration and to (b) identify the relationship between Collaborative Practice Assessment Tool (CPAT) scores with selected items from the Press Ganey® (PG) patient satisfaction survey. The results of the study indicated a moderately high perception of IPCP (M = 5.51, SD = 0.75), with the highest perceptions noted in the domains of Patient Involvement (M = 6.18, SD = 0.95) and Decision Making (M = 4.53, SD 0.82). There was no relationship between average CPAT scores and responses on PG (r = 0.009, p = 0.964). Results of this study provide baseline data for future research and can be used to develop strategies that further enhance interprofessional collaborative team practices.
