The topic of communication seemed to be a common theme throughout the day.  What I found most interesting and effective was hearing the perspective of medical students (I am a nurse).  The small group activity allowed us each to share our thoughts and ideas about communicating information about errors.  The varying perspectives between disciplines were quite interesting.  It was an eye-opening experience for each member of the group to consider the differences and similarities between disciplines.  For the medical students, understanding how to clearly communicate with nursing (and other disciplines) is vital to patient safety.
