Integrative Review of Instruments to Measure Team Performance During Neonatal Resuscitation Simulations in the Birthing Room.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To identify instruments appropriate to measure interprofessional team performance in neonatal resuscitation (NR), describe the validity and reliability of extant NR instruments, and determine instruments for use in interprofessional birthing room NR simulations.

DATA SOURCES:

The Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Ovid MEDLINE, Proquest, ScienceDirect, PubMed, and Scopus databases were searched.

STUDY SELECTION:

We used inclusion and exclusion criteria and screened 641 abstracts from January 2000 through December 2014 for relevance to the research question. We reviewed 78 full-text primary research publications in English and excluded 37 publications not specific to pediatrics or neonatology. After in-depth review of the 41 studies that remained, we excluded additional studies if they did not have an interprofessional focus, include psychometric information, or include a measurement instrument. Ten publications met the inclusion criteria.

DATA EXTRACTION AND SYNTHESIS:

Studies were reviewed, categorized, and scored to identify instruments to measure interprofessional team performance in simulations of birthing room NR. A social ecological model was used as a guide framework to identify multiple influencing factors at various levels that affect team performance. Ten instruments with documentation of validity and reliability for technical competence and team processes in interprofessional birthing room NR teams were identified.

CONCLUSION:

Extant instruments rarely address the multiple factors that may impede interprofessional team performance in birthing room NR. It is necessary for researchers to engage in rigorous psychometric testing of measurement instruments to ensure their validity and reliability for interprofessional NR teams and consider tests or updates (if necessary) of extant instruments rather than the development of new instruments.
