What is it about?
Many studies talk about a personality factor of humility. This paper gathered those studies and came up with a diagram which may describe humility and how this relates to working collaboratively among healthcare professionals. It seems that humility within professions needs to be nurtured because high achievement and working in stressful conditions can turn attention toward self-interest and away from the needs and contributions of others.

Why is it important?
In order to study a complex concept in science, it helps to have a starting point of discussion. This paper's diagram provided a starting point to investigate whether or not the concept of humility can be identified from data obtained from a follow-up study interviewing healthcare professionals in busy community clinics. Professionals must be competent at first, and not only focus on self-interest but also the needs and interests of other professionals. Humility allows professionals to be aware of their limitations, and the value of other workers.
