Promoting Effective Communication Within Collaborative Groups
Propp et al. (2010) identified two critical processes in nurse–team communications, which may enhance patient outcomes. In one process, promoting team synergy, the authors identified nine practices.
Think of a time when you were involved in building team synergy. Consider the following in your discussion:
What was happening at the time?
Which of the nine practices did you exhibit?
Were there other things you did to support teamwork?
How did you know your efforts were successful?
Would you have done anything differently, looking back?
What are the benefits of a team working together?
When (if ever) is conflict within a team productive?
What factors can contribute to role confusion and conflict among health care professionals?
Write a succinct initial post of at least 150 words. Demonstrate clarity of thought and precision in writing. Support your discussion with at least two references other than the required readings.
