Asa requirementforcompletingtheclinical observation,nursesare requiredto givean accountof whattheywentthrough in their trials.Theessenceof themeetingis to monitorprogressandobservethedevelopmentof professionalandinterpersonal qualitiesin themedicalprofessionals.Duringthemeeting,collaboration wasa primaryfactorthat improvedthereceptionof newideas.The members shared plans to solvevariousproblems.It helped in devisinga wayto keepthegroupin cohesionandforeffectivecommunication(Gardner, 2005).During themeeting,I observedseveralfactorsthat facilitatedthesuccessfuldeliberationas wellas a fewdrawbacksthat neededsomeattentionfora desirablecharacterin theprofessionals.

Asa generaloverview,themeetingsuccessfullyachievedits objectives.First,there wasan exhaustive communicationapproachon thenatureof servicesgivento thepatientsandthechallengesfacedin thework.During themeeting,thepresentmembersreceivedequalchancesto putacross their pointswithout anyallowedinterruption.I observedthiscommunicationandsharingexperiencesenabledthedevising of a planto counter thevariouschallengesmanifestingthemselves. There wereseveralissuesidentifiedemanatingfrom differencesin culture,race,andethnicity. Thesebroughtforwardtheneedto comeup with a culturally sensitivedeliveryof servicesthat has nodirectorindirectbiastowards one race.However,I notedthatthechallengeswould havebeenbetterwith thepresenceof a littledigressionon theindividualsituationsof difficulties.Theresolutionsreachedat would consequently be muchspecific(Gardner, 2005).

Themeetingwasan exhibitionof professionalcommunication.I observedthisby focusingon howtheparticipantsrelayedtheir pointswithout divertingfrom their pointof focus.Mostof thepointsraisedwereobjectivet theissuesin question.Forthisreason,there wasenoughtimeallocation to thematterof muchimportance.From thedeliberations,thechallengesraisedrelatingto therolesplayedby thenurseswasevidenceof goodprogressin gettingacquaintancewith their purposein theprimary,secondaryandtertiary levels (Asselmeier, 1987).

Asa nurse,there is a coupleof areasI would havegivenmoreattentionto a morecollaborative processthan theoneI observedduring themeeting.First,I would haveallowedthenursesto contextualize their challengesfora betterresponsefrom theothers. Mostof themembersare likelyto workacross theboardon thedifferentlevels of operations.Therefore,by havinga mentalpictureof thesituationtheywould havestooda betterpositionto shareviable proposalsto theproblems(Ekstrom &amp Sigurdsson, 2002). Secondly,I would havehelpedmy colleaguesto on up theactivitiestheycarryout since theyare thetransformers of community’shealth.

Finally,since thecollaborative processto improveperformancecannot be completewithout makingdecisions.I would changethesituationby pushingforthemakingresolutionsduring themeetingin situationsthat didnot callfortheinputof unavailable persons.Alotof procrastinations onlyleavesomenurseswithout remediesto their problemsdespite askingforassistance.With this,thesuccessfuldeliberationof issuesin themeetingwould havebeencloseto perfect.
