Interdisciplinary Communication

Create a 6–8-slide PowerPoint presentation that describes  communication barriers within an interdisciplinary team and how those  barriers affect patient safety and health care outcomes. Offer a  solution in which you recommend evidence-based strategies to improve  communication within the team and explain how the strategies benefit the  team and patients.

The ability to effectively communicate as part of interdisciplinary  collaboration is essential for patient safety and successful health  care delivery.

Effective communication is important in all organizations and is  especially important in the area of health care. Communication can come  in many forms, but the crucial factor is whether the communication is  effective.

Collaboration among teams is important for the delivery of  appropriate medical care and for providing the specialized skills  necessary to meet the needs of patients and the public. Assessing the  needs of a community may involve communication across several public  service providers and private entities.

Maintaining open communication and collaboration among teams is  essential to assess the needs of a community or those of patients and  their families within a health care system. The same communication  skills must be evident within the interdisciplinary health care team, or  across the public and private sectors in a community, in order to  promote collaboration and understanding and to provide the utmost  quality service.

Imagine you are part of an interdisciplinary health care team in your  organization. Although the team has been working together for several  months, communication between members is not always efficient or  effective, and the situation has become stressful for everyone. The team  leader asks you to develop a presentation for the team that addresses  the issue.
