Potential Impact

How will an answer to your research question be used or help inform decisions for you or your group?
Nurses and doctors would work more collaboratively if the physicians had some kind of incentive to make them treat nurses better. Bullying, violence and burnout are all linked to oppression. Doctors are not nice people and use their power for their benefit.
