Physician-nurse practitioner teamwork in primary care practices in New York: a cross-sectional survey.
Primary care practices increasingly rely on the growing workforce of nurse practitioners (NPs) to meet primary care demand. Understanding teamwork between NPs and physicians in primary care practices is critically important. In this study, the investigators assessed teamwork between NPs and physicians practicing within the same primary care practice and determined how teamwork affected their job satisfaction, intent to leave their current job, and quality of care.

The researchers examined the work experiences of primary care physicians and staff after implementing Lean-based workflow redesigns.

However, the subjects also experienced higher levels of burnout and perceptions of the workplace as stressful.

Strategies for achieving whole-practice engagement and buy-in to the patient-centered medical home.
In this paper the authors describe strategies for obtaining organizational buy-in to and whole-staff engagement of patient-centered medical home (PCMH) transformation and practice improvement. The investigators suggest that their study provides a list of strategies useful for facilitating PCMH transformation in primary care. They assert that these strategies could be investigated empirically in future research, used to guide medical practices undergoing or considering PCMH transformation, and used to inform health care policy makers.
