Validation of Mini Z Survey: Overall alpha for the 10 items was 0.80; individual factor alphas were 0.74 and 0.72 for the teamwork/values factor and EMR use/stress factors, respectively. Correlations demonstrated convergent validity across survey items, with modest to moderate r values (0.39–0.57, p Clinician burnout and work life can be feasibly and reliably captured using the Mini Z survey tool.
