Abstract

A qualitative study was conducted applying a theoretically based model of teamwork to determine relevant team processes among nurses. Nurses from 5 patient care units participated in focus groups, describing team processes in their daily work. Responses were analyzed in the Salas framework to develop a concrete conceptualization of teamwork within nursing teams. Results support the framework as a means for describing teamwork among nurses.
