In ICUs where there is poor leadership and poor collaboration between nurses and physicians, there exists close to a two-fold increase in risk-adjusted mortality and length of stay. Therefore, the study purpose was to pilot an intervention to enhance collaboration about patient care among nursing and physician leaders. A pretest-posttest, repeated measures design was used that incorporated baseline assessment, then implementation of the intervention over 8 months. Immediate post-intervention and 6-month post-intervention data were collected. Ten nurse and physician leaders from two diverse ICUs participated in an intervention designed to enhance the collaborative elements of communication, conflict management, coordination, and team culture. Collaboration skills were assessed with a written simulation of a nurse-physician interaction and with a self-report questionnaire. Results of within-subjects analysis of variance indicated that patterns of score change differed among subscales (Wilks' Lambda=.71, F (13, 112)=3.45, p < .001, multivariate eta squared=.29). Paired sample t-tests on subscales revealed that the intervention program was significantly effective on leadership characteristics exhibited, overall satisfaction on leadership skills, and overall satisfaction on communication skills (p < .05). Therefore, collaboration skills among nurses and physicians can be improved.
