Aim: To investigate whether nurse-led presentation ward rounds improve collaboration between nurses and doctors within the critical care setting. Method: Qualitative, open-ended designed questionnaires were distributed before and after the nurse-led presentation ward rounds to nurses and doctors within a critical care unit. Thoughts and feelings about elements of collaboration on both the traditional ward round and the nurse-led presentation ward round were gained. Results: Response rates of 72.5% and 55% were gained for the before and after questionnaires. Nursing and medical staff reported that communication, teamwork and collaboration had improved following the nurse-led presentation ward round. Staff reported that they perceived patient core had improved. Nursing and medical staff had different perceptions of communication and collaboration, with the nursing staff reporting that collaboration varied greatly depending on the consultant present on the ward round. Medical staff were satisfied with the level of collaboration on ward rounds. Conclusion: Nurse-led presentation ward rounds have the potential to improve the team working of all professions on the ward rounds by increasing the collaboration, communication and teamwork. A longer time scale would be beneficial to allow all staff to participate in the study.
