Research Studies/QI Projects

Are you a healthcare provider who works on a team? Would you be willing to share a brief story that illustrates your teamwork experience, and answer some follow-up survey questions?


The University of Calgary research team is hoping to collect data from a diverse group of healthcare providers, representing multiple professions and areas of practice. This voluntary, anonymous survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. 
The collected information may help inform the development of future teamwork training initiatives for healthcare students and providers.

This study has received REB approval from the University of Calgary (REB20-1611).
Questions or comments about this study can be sent to irina.charania2@ucalgary.ca.
