Communication and Teamwork as a Nursing Competence: Aspects of Facilitating and Impediments



Interdisciplinary nursing teamwork enhances an important model for patient healthcare delivery. Patient care and effective safety depend on a multidisciplinary team of professionals in healthcare. Unfortunately, the field currently lacks an evidence-based framework for effective teamwork that can be integrated into medical education and practice across health professions. This article aims to describe the importance of multidisciplinary teamwork as a nursing competence in coronary and critical care. It discusses identifying common challenges to teamwork in healthcare and evidence-based strategies for quality improvement initiatives. As physicians and nurses provide parts of patient care, coordinating the various treatments and interventions provided is critical to preventing errors and fragmenting of care. Tensions, misunderstandings, and conflicts arising from differing opinions and interests can interfere with effective communication and interdisciplinary collaboration. It's appropriate to conduct new studies to approach agent management and also, to develop and implement collaboration and cooperation as a potential integrating tool between agents and their knowledge, in the context of holistic care, as well as qualification and vocational training to working in the coronary care unit.

Key words: Teamwork; Nursing Competence; Communication
