Shortell, Rousseau, Gillies, Devers, and Simons (1991) developed the Nurse-Physician Intensive Care Units Questionnaire in order to validate a theoretical model of performance in Intensive Care Units (ICUs).
The instrument taps well-established dimensions in organizational psychology, such as communication and styles of handling interpersonal conflict.
The purpose of this study was to validate the Shortell et al. questionnaire in a Belgian context and to analyze substantive relationships between its dimensions.
The study was conducted in six ICUs from a university hospital.
Results show that nursing leadership and authority, communication, and conflict management contributed most to perceived unit effectiveness and job satisfaction.
Within-unit consensus was good on most dimensions and between-unit variance was substantial.
