Graduate Student Needed to Assist with Qualitative Analysis
Researchers at UNC are looking for a graduate student to assist with qualitative analysis for the following study: “Teaching and Sustaining a Shared Mental Model for Effective Intra-operative Communication and Teamwork.”
Project Summary: This study seeks to identify team‐specific barriers to the uptake of behaviors that improve operating room teamwork, communication and patient safety. Barriers will be identified using a combined quantitative and qualitative survey. We plan to design and implement a curriculum that teaches means to overcome the barriers identified. We will subsequently evaluate whether the implementation of this curriculum was effective in improving communication and teamwork in the operating room.
Interested students should contact Dr. Lauren Schiff at Lauren_Schiff@med.unc.edu.
