Summary of project aims
The aims of this pilot study were as follows: (a) to examine the design and utility of an intervention based on the Sensemaking model, and (b) to examine communication between nurses and physicians caring for residents in the nursing home.
- Does communication improve from baseline after Sensemaking training (SBAR use) in the long-term care setting as perceived by nurses or physicians caring for nursing home residents?
- Following Sensemaking training in the use of SBAR, is Shared Meaning apparent in communication events about change in resident status by nurses and physicians working in a nursing home?
- To what extent are nurses and physicians satisfied with the Sensemaking intervention in terms of intervention length, content, and format and communication experience?
