The domino game we participated in today really hammered home the point of read-backs in communication and allowing all involved in the process to feel empowered enough to speak up. We think that what we tell someone makes perfect sense…it did in our head! However, when you are on the other side of the coin it is usually clear as mud. When we had the chance to clarify instructions by processing the information in our minds and making sense of it, then relaying it back to the instructor, it not only allowed the instructor to adjust in that one detail, it also allowed them to adjust for future details to improve the efficiency as the game proceeded. This exercise was very helpful and will be brought back and shared with my residency program!
