THOFEHRN, Maira Buss et al. Teamwork: vision of nurses in a hospital of Murcia/Spain. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.36, pp.223-237. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: To know the vision of nurses who work in a Hospital of Murcia in Spain, about teamwork. Method: This was a qualitative, descriptive and exploratory study, conducted from November 2011 to January 2012, with 14 nurses who worked at the University Hospital Reina Sofía. The data collection occurred through two focus group meetings. Data were analyzed by the proposed operative of Minayo. Results: The nurses recognize that all team members are important and that each one contributes with its specificities. However, many difficulties are faced in carrying out the daily work, such as individualism, high staff turnover, lack of autonomy, vertical power relations, lack of time for meetings and of leaders to build and to encourage the teamwork. Conclusion: It is emphasized that effective communication in the workplace may be able to reduce conflicts and promote the formation of healthy professional links. Thus, dialogical attitudes are fundamental to promote collective work.
