|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this study is to determine employee satisfaction levels of members of an Interdisciplinary Team in a hospital based environment and to gain insight into how certain variables can affect employee satisfaction. “Interdisciplinary teams as those where members continue to work from particular disciplinary orientations but undertake some joint collaborative work” (Opie 1997, p. 263). This study will also unveil current views and attitudes regarding job satisfaction that could translate to numerous settings.
Several factors relating to employee satisfaction and their impacts in both hospital and interdisciplinary-based environments were found in a literature review. Individuals currently working on a interdisciplinary teams, health managers and administrators managing an interdisciplinary team, or those wishing to embark on a career in the health related industry will find this study useful.

distributed to the members of the Interdisciplinary Team in the Neurological Department and the Luther Hospital in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The survey questions will address employee perceptions of the physical environment, growth opportunities, workloads and responsibilities, trust and mutual respect, empowerment, and training and development.||
