Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The purpose of this quantitative study was to assess if a four-month-long training and coaching program could improve interprofessional collaboration in a sample of 27 pairs of teachers and OTs. A paired-sample t-test found statistical significance between pre- and posttest scores, indicating improvement in communication, role perception, and conflict resolution. This study provides an effective training and coaching sequence to improve collaboration in school-based settings.
