Day 3 Reflection
Interdisciplinary work in the clinical setting is critical to patient safety, a fact I have learned with my background in patient safety research and a practice that has been encouraged during my first three years of medical school. However, this is not something I have been able to regularly participate in during my clinical year. This week has been a great opportunity to break down some of the barriers that are commonly faced across healthcare professions without the walls of the clinical setting. Performing activities together such as the Dominoes game and the Escape Room allowed us to improve communication skills on an equal level. It will be important that I reflect on these experiences for example, what strategies did we utilize to achieve more effective communication? How do I ensure strong communication, openness, and respect in my future role in interdisciplinary teams?
