Sammanfattning
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to describe the development and testing of a questionnaire aiming to measure team collaboration in the patient transfer process from the ICU to the general ward. The purpose is also to analyze the results to see how the survey can help improve team collaboration within ICU transitional care.

Methodology/approach – Twenty statements were developed from theory and intended to measure team collaboration within and between hospital units. These statements were added to an existing questionnaire measuring values from QM theory. The questionnaire was tested in two ICUs in two hospitals located in Sweden, and the results from the statements regarding team collaboration were analyzed with SPSS.

Findings – The results indicate that there is an internal consistency reliability between the developed factors and statements measuring team collaboration within and between hospital units. The results from the survey also show that this measurement tool can be a basis for improving team collaboration in the studied context.
