Organizational Assessment in Intensive Care Units (ICUs): Construct Development, Reliability, and Validity of the ICU Nurse-Physician Questionnaire

Edit resource

Health Services Research has a growing need for reliable and valid measures of managerial practices and organizational processes. A national study of 42 intensive care units involving over 1,700 respondents provides evidence for the reliability and validity of a comprehensive set of measures related to leader- ship, organizational culture, communication, coordination, problem solving- conflict management and team cohesiveness. The data also support the appro- priateness of aggregating individual respondent data to the unit level. Implica- tions for further research are discussed.
