Interprofessional Team Negotiations
The issue to be negotiated revolved around the best nursing care model to use in our team. The interests that influenced me included empathy, teamwork, justice, and integrity. My colleague wanted us to embrace the power of a primary nursing care delivery model. However, I preferred a team-based approach to provide emergency services. The outstanding objective criteria to guide the negotiation were moral and professional standards.
Two outcome options were possible in my setting. The first one was to consider a team-based nursing care delivery model to support the targeted individuals. The second outcome option was the application of a primary nursing model to transform patients’ health outcomes. Both negotiation outcomes could improve the experiences of different team members. All stakeholders would be happy if the best model was selected to deliver high-quality emergency care.
My interprofessional team embraces the most appropriate ideas, concepts, and models to deliver high-quality emergency services to different patients. The leading artifacts of my team include the existence of policies to guide action plans, processes to deliver positive results, and norms. These aspects explain why all members act in a friendly manner. The espoused values are honesty, integrity, ethics, and compassion.
When a new team member joins our team, it would be appropriate to inform him or her about the organization’s assumptions and unspoken values. I would begin by encouraging the individual to examine the behaviors, ethical attributes, and processes that all employees in this company take seriously. The new member should also monitor the relationships established between patients and caregivers to learn more about the organization’s unspoken values. The individual will also study how practitioners handle emerging problems in order to understand the facility’s assumptions.
The selected area for improvement is that of leadership. Although I possess adequate competencies in this field, acquiring new insights can ensure that this objective is achieved. The selected colleagues provided several suggestions. These included engaging in lifelong learning, identifying a mentor to guide and empower me, and practicing a wide range of leadership attributes in my unit. With these ideas, I believe that I will be able to record a positive improvement. This achievement will empower me to succeed in my career.
First Impressions and Non-verbal Clues
Before joining my current team, I used to view one of the individuals as unfriendly and incapable of relating with other people positively. However, my experiences as a member of the team revealed the opposite. I realized that the individual was optimistic, helpful, and willing to pursue the outlined goals. This assumption made it hard for me to interact with the member efficiently. I also found it hard to be part of the decision-making process and remained skeptical within the first few weeks.
I have picked up several nonverbal cues from my group. The leading two include haptics and proxemics. The members usually touch, shake hands, and hug one another. The second one means that they interact and remain close to each other. These cues tell me that such individuals appreciate the idea of teamwork to deliver positive results. They also guide them to make decisions much faster and transform their patients’ experiences. Such cues have also affected my behavior positively.
I have embraced them to ensure that the team succeeds. I also consider appropriate nonverbal cues that the team uses to deliver high-quality medical emergency services. All members have been affected positively since they relate positively and share ideas to achieve their potential.
