Abstract:In previous studies, the importance of non-technical skills of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) teams have already been established. Of these skills, communication is the most important predictor for efficient task execution in such teams. Furthermore, it has been established that the composition of personality in the team is an important element in influencing team performance. Understanding the relation between team personality compositing of teams practicing CPR in a simulated setting and team performance might help to raise awareness of pitfalls in communication when certain members have to work together. To empirically examine this, 14 teams of Technical Medicine students participated in this research. The study gathered data by assessing a personality test, by using sociometric badges, and by using a team performance measurement. On basis of a multiple linear regression analysis and a mediation analysis insight could be obtained on whether and which team personality composition influences team performance and whether communication mediates this relation. The findings from this research illustrate that team personality composition does not influence the team performance of CPR teams. Practical implications, strengths and limitations of the research are discussed. Moreover, future research directions include the mediating role of amount of speech, and controlling for gender are given.
