From: Do employees benefit from collaborations between out of hours general practitioners and emergency departments?

Total Quality 313 3.55 ± 0.42 226 3.54 ± 0.43 −0.013 (− 0.084 to 0.058)
Workload 329 2.83 ± ± 0.53 222 2.92 ± 0.62 0.084 (−0.013 to 0.181)
Co-operation 280 3.21 ± 0.52 216 3.38 ± 0.56 0.177 (0.080 to 0.273)

Workload 206 2,77 ± 0,56 132 2,65 ± 0,53 −0.120 (− 0.239 to 0.003)
Co-operation 171 3,27 ± 0,55 123 3,39 ± 0,58 0.122 (−0.009 to 0.254)
ED Quality 107 3,52 ± 0,38 93 3,48 ± 0,43 −0.040 (− 0.153 to 0.074)
Workload 123 2,94 ± 0,47 90 3,31 ± 0,52 0.367 (0.233 to 0.501)
Co-operation 109 3,11 ± 0,46 93 3,37 ± 0,52 0.264 (0.129 to 0.400)
  1. Scored 1–5, higher scores correspond with more perceived quality (1 = bad, 5 = excellent), higher workload (1 = workload not considered a burden, 5 = high burden) and more co-operation between GPs and EDs (1 = very dissatisfied, 5 = very satisfied)
