Practicum Activities Reflection:

Over the past two weeks of practicum with my preceptor, I spent most of the time learning about building a professional relationship with other staff members to promote interprofessional collaboration through effective communication and taking professional responsibility and accountability. The current healthcare system is migrating towards the provision of patient-centered care which greatly relies on interprofessional collaboration. According to the American Nurses Association (ANA), strong collaboration among staff members from different professional disciplines ensures that the care team members embrace patient-centered care protocols and policies (Goldsberry, 2018). My preceptor has been an excellent coordinator in promoting collaborative practice by interacting effectively with a team of clinicians including physicians and pharmacists among others. In the same line, I have been able to take care of different patients working alongside physicians, nutritionists, psychiatrists, and pharmacists among other healthcare professionals. I have noticed that the adoption of appropriate communication skills, such as active listening and the use of professional knowledge is key to promoting a healthy professional relationship among team members. Effective communication is also key in promoting clinical reasoning and shared decision making which is essential in promoting professional accountability and responsibility.

Application of Leadership:

            With the adoption of the servant leadership style, my preceptor has been able to effectively coordinate efficient workflow in the provision of safe and quality care. With this leadership style, my preceptor has been able to stay out of the attention, allowing interprofessional team members to accept credit for their hard work hence promoting professional responsibility (Perna, 2018). The confidence and morale of team members have also been promoted by this leadership approach. Despite having the power to control others, my preceptor has been influencing and persuading team members to exhibit their full potential in promoting innovative practices for optimal care outcomes. Through servant leadership, my preceptor has also been able to build trust among team members as they have a strong belief that he authentically considers the significance of their welfare as he has always encouraged awareness and worked towards creating a healthy working environment. He has also displayed a high level of integrity by reflecting honesty and authenticity in what is right. Finally, my preceptor has been able to display a high level of emotional intelligence displaying empathy to patients and understanding among staff members.

Practicum Project Preparation:

Through this practicum experience, I intend to adopt effective communications skills in promoting professional collaboration and taking account of my professional decision in the provision of care. As a nurse leader, I have been able to appreciate the significance of collaborative practice in promoting safety and the quality of care provided. Just as pointed out by my preceptor, for effective interprofessional collaboration staff members need to display appropriate communication skills to promote engagement in collective decision-making (Schot et al., 2020). For instance, nurses need to be able to take time to listen and understand the patient’s concerns for them to be able to address their issues appropriately for better care outcomes. Lack of communication or poor communication has been associated with patients’ misunderstanding and failure to adhere to the treatment protocols. I plan to acquire all the good communication skills through this practicum experience comprising bother verbal and non-verbal communication skills in addition to active listening and appropriate patient teach-back techniques. Some of the verbal communication skills include clarity, accuracy, and honesty, with an appropriate understanding of the patient in terms of age, level of health literacy, and culture. Non-verbal communication includes smiling and nodding the head when agreeing. To promote a healthy relationship with interprofessional team members, appropriate communication skills will include active listening, respect, being open, trust, compassion, and the use of respectful and sensitive language.

Leadership Video Reflection:

The video “Servant Leadership – The Issue of Power” mainly talks about the seven distinctive characteristics of servant leadership focusing on power. The speaker starts by defining leadership as influence. From this definition, we can learn that leaders are required to use their power to positively influence their followers to work towards achieving the organization’s goals (Servant Leadership – the Issue of Power [Cc], n.d.). A good leader must have appropriate skills and competencies to be able to positively influence others such as listening, trust, empathy, humility, and appreciation among others. Secondly, the speaker reiterates the fact that leaders must be able to be authentic by first identifying what they can offer to their followers to be able to influence them positively. Getting feedback from their followers can help leaders identify their strengths in terms of what they can offer.
