dc.description.abstractPurpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate interprofessional teamwork amongst health professions students in an escape room and compare the evaluation of teamwork to the time it takes to “escape the room.” Methods: 42 interprofessional student teams of MD, PA, PT, and OT students participated in an escape room and 40 teams were included in the final data analysis. Each team was evaluated using a modified version of the Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide (JTOG). Primary outcomes: total JTOG score, overall impression of teamwork score, and escape room time. Secondary outcomes: IPEC theme scores (themes represented in the JTOG) of leadership, communication, roles and responsibilities, and values and ethics. Results: Total JTOG scores had little correlation to escape room time (correlation coefficient = 0.084). Teams with higher overall impression scores tended to escape faster; for every 1-point increase in score, escape room time decreased by 4.78 minutes (95% CI - 7.01, -2.55; p<0.001). For every 1-point increase in the leadership theme, teams took 1.07 minutes longer to escape (95% CI 0.11, 2.04; p=0.031). For every 1-point increase in the teamwork theme, teams took 15.2 minutes longer to escape (95% CI 6.61, 23.7; p=0.001). For every 1-point increase in the communication theme, teams escaped 2.55 minutes faster (95% CI -5.33, 0.23; p=0.07). Conclusion: Teams that escaped the room the fastest had higher overall impression scores of teamwork and higher communication theme scores. Overall, greater team functioning and communication clinically translates to teams being faster and more efficient at problem-solving and moving through tasks.en_US
