Qualitative examination of collaboration in team-based primary care during the COVID-19 pandemic.BMJ Open. 2023 Feb 2;13(2):e067208. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2022-067208.
Summary of Findings: Results revealed the importance of collaboration for provider well-being, and the challenges of providing collaborative team-based primary care in the pandemic context. Caution against converting primary care collaboration to predominantly virtual modalities postpandemic is recommended. Further research on team functioning during the COVID-19 pandemic in other healthcare organisations will offer additional insight regarding how primary care teams can work collaboratively in a postpandemic environment.
