Leadership Strategies in Transport Team Recruitment and Retention

Stephen Caron

Abstract

The goal of the pediatric registered nurse-registered respiratory therapist (RN-RRT) transport team is to safely transport the pediatric patients requiring transport to a tertiary facility. Attrition of RN-RRT team members threatened the future existence of this invaluable service. This research project examined recruitment and retention practices through use of an interview with a manager of a successful transport organization and a world café with key stakeholders involved in pediatric transport. Main findings included the impact of education, leadership and teamwork in addressing strategies to improve recruitment and retention practices of the RN-RRT transport team.
