Thinking about how I work with other professionals

3.2 Using a framework to think about communication between yourself and other professionals

Activity 5

Timing: 0 hours 40 minutes

The objective of this activity is:

  • to use a variety of ‘tools’ to help you examine your practice.

Describe how your practice relates to the categories in the framework for professional communication presented in Table 1.

Give an example from your practice, such as a team meeting, to show professionals sharing information and skills.

Inevitably, in any setting, the way you work is dependent on constraints as well as your own underpinning knowledge, values and beliefs. Understanding those constraints is important, as the next activity illustrates.
