Table 1 Worked example of team stability, staffing sufficiency, and role continuity calculations

From: Impact of team configuration and team stability on primary care quality

Role Time point in study observation period n of within role separations in obs. period n of time points role filled Staffing sufficiency Role continuity
1 2 3 4 5 6     
PCP a a a 0 0 b 1 4.00 .67 0.83
Care manager c c c c c c 0 6.00 1.00 1.00
Clinical associate d e e e f f 2 6.00 1.00 0.67
Clerical associate g g 0 0 0 0 0 2.00 .33 1.00
n of roles 4 4 3 2 2 3     
Calculating team stability:
 A. n of separations during the observation period: (i.e., total number of people who left their role, whether or not they were replaced by a new team member)   4
 B. Average n of roles during the observation period   3
Coefficient of team stability (1 − (A/B))   − .33
