Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this nurse/physician relationship survey was to identify how each caregiver felt about their working relationships on the nursing unit. Significance: The significance is to provide the best quality patient care possible while working towards this goal in a positive colleagual environment. Design: Magnet hospitals promote healthy nurse/physician relationships and the Institute of Medicine points to the "historical lack of intraprofessional cooperation" as one of the cultural barriers to safety in hospitals. Methods: The CNS on the unit formulated a team of nurses. These team members were part of the units "education committee. By monthly meetings lead by the CNS a survey was developed for all nurses, attending and resident physicians to complete. Several questions were asked regarding how they felt about the nurse/physician relationship, did it affect patient satisfaction and patient outcomes and were they interested to help make this relationship improve. Findings: The process was well received. The responses were timely. There was good participation overall to provide an adequate sample. Conclusions: The unit nurses perceived the nurse/physician relationship as less favorable then the physicians. All nurses and physicians agreed that this relationship affected patient satisfaction and outcomes. Implications for Practice: Practice changes- the unit has allowed additional time in the monthly "education committee" for a resident physician and or attending physician to attend and address the nurse concerns and share physician concerns. Luncheon meeting are provided to any new physicians ie., new residents joining the hospital.
