Conversely, for nurses, the professi onal commitment had a significantpositive effect on attitudes towards interprofessional collaboration whereas careunit commitment had no significant effect.Conclusion Intergroup relations affect the extent to which nurses and physiciansare inclined to engage in interprofessional collaboration. Professional and careunit commitments had different effects on attitude toward the inter-professionalcollaboration of nurses and physicians.Implication for Nursing Management Inter-professional collaboration is affectedby the relationship between physicians and nurse at the professional group level.Managers who want to change and improve inter-professional collaborationshould pay close attention to the interplay between changes they are introducingand well-established identities and practices between professionals.
