Abstract
Role ambiguity and role conflict were investigated in two occupational groups within a hospital setting. These role stresses were negatively correlated for both nurses (N = 124) and respiratory therapists (N = 31) with job satisfaction, individual performance, and unit effectiveness. While the possible moderating effects of participation in decision making and tolerance for conflict were generally not supported, the patterns are suggestive of further research.
