Research subject:

Collaboration in interprofessional teams is considered necessary in order to optimize healthcare and maximize competence to meet the challenges of today's complex care. Previous research has shown that interprofessional learning prepares students for future collaborative work. Furthermore, readiness to interprofessional collaboration seems to be related to biological sex and education. Personality traits are clearly related to group dynamic and performance, but less is known about the influence of personality on nursing students’ readiness for interprofessional learning.

The current project aims to generate knowledge of nursing students’ readiness for interprofessional learning in association with personality traits. The generated knowledge could contribute to altered preparations and instructions prior to the clinical placement where interprofessional learning is practiced.
