As you explore the questions in this thread, think about tools that you may have used to assist with ensuring written and oral communications are clear, concise, relevant, and credible. How can we, as professionals, ensure that our communication is clear and professional?

This leads us to explore how the professional nature of nursing affects interdisciplinary collaboration. Hood (2014) states that being involved in process and solution focused, consensus building discussions creates an environment where people can communicate effectively and work together. Thinking about your current work environment, what would you change to enhance staff empowerment and consensus building?
