Healthcare team performance is affected by the individual capabilities of each team member, as well as the contextual complexities of the patient care environment, itself set within a complex system. It is essential to characterize the individual and team factors that most impact healthcare team performance to inform the development of impactful team training resources. The primary aim of this study was to determine the relative impacts of individual and collective team factors on team performance in the provision of emergent, urgent clinical care, and use them to inform development of a team-training App solution. The study was completed using a purposive sample of Emergency Medicine personnel from four demographically distinct sites with varying institutional cultures. Variables were controlled through random assignment or directly measured. Individual data were captured using self-report and knowledge assessment instruments. Three raters captured team data during the provision of care in high-stress simulated emergency medicine contexts. Regression analyses were used to predict the value of continuous dependent criterion variables Y1 team performance, Y2 team cohesiveness, Y3 team morale from the known values of individual and team predictor variables, with a statistical significance of p .05.
