Abstract

The TeamSTEPPS Teamwork Attitudes Questionnaire and Safety Attitudes Questionnaire were distributed to the nurses in a county hospital in Taiwan. Nurses (n = 407) had lower scores in Team Structure, Communication, and Situation Monitoring than physicians (n = 76). A structural equation model demonstrated a positive association between teamwork climate and safety attitudes ([beta] = 0.78, P < .01). Teamwork climate is the most important determinant for patient safety attitudes among nurses.
