Week 7 reflection health policy
One of the topics covered in this week’s readings is the importance of communication in the healthcare industry. MSN Essential VI: Leading and managing in nursing practice is especially relevant. In any industry, good communication is essential to leadership and management. This is particularly true in healthcare. If healthcare providers can communicate well with patients and each other, then they will be able to work better together. A poor level of communication may lead to mistakes and adverse outcomes. It is important that healthcare leaders prioritize their own communication skills, along with those of their staff. They should also foster an open culture for communication in their organizations.
