We invite you to participate in a research study that examines motivators for collaboration. We are investigating what motivates people to collaborate and what potentially hinders that collaboration.

Your participation will be approximately 15 mins. There are three steps that you will need to complete in this study.

  1. You will watch an introductory video from the Principal Investigator explaining the research study.
  2. We will provide you with a handout of motivators and their explanations in relation to our past and current research.
  3. You will then watch a video that highlights a brief incident followed by a few questions in relation to the incident. At the end, you will be asked to take an inventory called the Motivation Assessment for Team Readiness, Integration, and Collaboration (MATRICx).

Step 1

Let’s get started by hearing from Professor Gaetano Lotrecchiano, Clinical Research and Leadership, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, The George Washington University.

Step 2

Individuals are motivated to collaborate for a variety of reasons. The Motivators Handout, available for download, describes such motivators. Please download the handout and take a look at these; we will be asking you to try to determine which motivators are at play the video case that follows.

As Professor Lotrecchiano explained in Step 1, this list of motivators and definitions emerged from research we conducted for clinical research settings. The definitions may or may not be applicable. Through this research we hope to determine what.

Step 3

Our case begins!

Step 3a: Watch the brief video below and then take the survey that follows.

Step 3b: Click here to take answer the questions in relation to the video incident.
