As was expected, analysis of variance in a sample of 1001 nurses show that primary healthcare nursing teams, scored significantly higher than nurses from three other healthcare settings (hospitals, retirement homes, and daycare facilities). Further, a CFA with the items of this scale and the items of an established patient satisfaction scale pointed to a better fit of two factors model over one factor model. Last, in a second sample that includes 962 nurses we found an indirect effect of the nursing team's agreeable communication style on the team's patient adherence promotion that is partially mediated by team reflexivity.</p> Sarit Rashkovits, Liora Ore Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal For Research In Health Sciences And Nursing (ISSN: 2208-2670) Tue, 30 Apr 2019 06:59:35 +0000
