1 The importance of relational coordination for integrated care delivery to older patients in the hospital J.M. Hartgerink, J.M. Cramm, T.J.E.M. Bakker, R.A.M. van Eijsden, J.P. Mackenbach, A.P. Nieboer

2 Background I 34-50% functional decline Fragmented, duplicated and directed at acute disease Integrated care delivery –coordinated response –horizontal work processes –complementary role

3 Background II Theory of relational coordination “mutually reinforcing process of interaction between communication and relationships carried out for the purpose of task integration”

4 Setting and design Cross-sectional study Vlietland hospital, The Netherlands Data collected in professionals (44% response rate)

5 Questionnaires I Relational coordination survey –Communication frequency/timeliness, accuracy and problem solving –Relationships shared goals, shared knowledge and mutual respect –4-point scale –Cronbach’s alpha 0.96

6 Questionnaires II Assessment of chronic illness care (ACIC) –Self-management support –Delivery system design –Decision support –Clinical information systems –11-point scale –Cronbach’s alpha 0.87

7 Results I - descriptives Relational coordination M = 2.57 (SD 0.95) Integrated care delivery M = 5.58 (SD 1.79) Characteristic% SexFemale76 ProfessionMedical specialist27 Nurse64 Paramedic9 Years working in the organization>1 year96

8 Results II – differences in disciplines Geriatric unit compared to other hospital units: –Higher integrated care delivery –Higher relational coordination Nurses compared to medical specialists: –Higher relational coordination Same discipline compared to different disciplines: –Higher relational coordination

9 Results III – multiple regression analysis  BSE Background characteristics Nurse Paramedic Gender Number of years working in the current organization Relational coordination Overall relational coordination 0.20* Adjusted R² for equation 0.11 F * P < 0.001

10 Conclusion Relations, communication and coordination to improve integrated care Value of geriatric unit Less attraction to the unfamiliar discipline

11 Discussion Cross-sectional design Confounders Patient experiences and outcomes

12 Practical implications Expand geriatric awareness Improve attraction to the unfamiliar discipline Introduce training programmes Redefine goals and objectives of teamwork
