Communication in health care profession

One characteristic of the health care environment is that it is ever-changing, and a changing environment requires health care professionals to be excellent communicators, both orally and in writing. Yet, workloads in most areas of health care are intensifying, making effective communications difficult to attain. This week, we will talk about some of the fears that surround the writing process and how to overcome them to become the effective communicators demanded in the health care industry.

As you engage with the questions and with others as they join in the discussion, be sure to read what has already been posted and then add substantively to the discussion. Time goes quickly, so remember to post early! The first question is opinion-based so that you can begin the discussion immediately without having completed all of your readings. You will apply your assigned readings to subsequent questions.
