Objective: Evaluate the use of the Innovation Studio on interprofessional collaboration and attitudes toward interprofessional learning, job satisfaction and intent to stay. Background: The healthcare workforce is experiencing high burnout rates and providers are unsatisfied with their work. Evidence supports that interprofessional collaboration is a key strategy to increase job satisfaction and intent to stay in healthcare professionals. The Innovation Studio is a tool to engage healthcare providers in interprofessional collaboration. Methods: A pretest/posttest evaluation of the Innovation Studio with 14 healthcare professionals was conducted with self-reported scores on job satisfaction, readiness for interprofessional learning, and intent to stay as outcomes. Results: Positive effects were found on interprofessional learning and intent to stay, but not job satisfaction. Eleven interprofessional projects were developed. Responses to open-ended questions indicated satisfaction with the Innovation Studio. Conclusions: The Innovation Studio was successful in stimulating numerous interprofessional projects and had a positive effect on interprofessional learning and intent to stay.
