Evaluate the use of the Innovation Studio on interprofessional collaboration and attitudes toward interprofessional learning, job satisfaction, and intent to stay.
The healthcare workforce is experiencing high burnout rates, and providers are unsatisfied with their work. Evidence supports that interprofessional collaboration is a key strategy to increase job satisfaction and intent to stay in healthcare professionals. The Innovation Studio is a tool to engage healthcare providers in interprofessional collaboration.
A pretest/posttest evaluation of the Innovation Studio with 14 healthcare professionals was conducted with self-reported scores on job satisfaction, readiness for interprofessional learning, and intent to stay as outcomes.
Positive effects were found on interprofessional learning and intent to stay, but not job satisfaction. Eleven interprofessional projects were developed. Responses to open-ended questions indicated satisfaction with the Innovation Studio.
The Innovation Studio was successful in stimulating numerous interprofessional projects and had a positive effect on interprofessional learning and intent to stay.
