Aim To translate “The Collaboration and Satisfaction About Care Decisions in Team” questionnaire (CSACD‐T) into Norwegian and test it for psychometric properties. The further aim was to describe and compare healthcare personnel's collaboration and satisfaction about team decision‐making (TDM) across hospital units. Design A cross‐sectional study. Methods The questionnaire was translated into Norwegian. A total of 247 healthcare personnel at two hospitals responded to the questionnaire. An explorative factor analysis was performed to test the factor structure of the questionnaire, while a Cronbach's alpha analysis was used to test for internal consistency. A one‐way ANOVA analysis and a Kruskal–Wallis test were applied to test for differences between hospital units. Results The results demonstrate that the Norwegian version of the CSACD‐T has promising psychometric properties regarding construct validity and internal consistency. The mean score of the CSACD‐T was significantly higher in the maternity ward group than in the emergency room group.
