Title: Relationship Between Role Conflict, Role Ambiguity, and Interprofessional Team Collaboration Among Nurses Caring For Older Adults in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
Author: Ejesi, Ike
Abstract: The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between role conflict (RC), role ambiguity (RA) and interprofessional team collaboration (ITC) among nurses caring for older adults in intensive care units (ICU). Using random sample (n = 403) selected from the primary study by Fox (2014), Pearsons correlations showed statistically significant relationship between RA, RC, as well as between ITC and highest level of nursing education resource availability, and institutional values. There was no statistical significant relationship between gender and ITC. Using regression analysis and controlling for the extraneous variables, a significant regression equation was found (F(7, 403) = 21.19, p < 0.0); whereas RA had a statistical significantly relationship with ITC, RC and the extraneous variables were not significantly associated with ITC. Results suggest a need to reduce role to improve interprofessional collaboration. Further research is needed to identify other variables related to interprofessional team collaboration.
